September 2012 | Jonathan Shaha, Marc Geisler, Rainer Beck, Sonja-Lara Bepperling

The European Railway Agency (ERA) is responsible for developing harmonized European risk acceptance criteria for use in risk assessments. The existing Commission Regulation 352/2009 specifies an initial risk acceptance criterion for technical systems (RAC-TS). As part of revising the regulation, the ERA plans to extend their specifications regarding the explicit risk acceptance criteria for technical systems.
