MEETING THE MAGLEV SYSTEMS' SAFETY REQUIREMENTS

The author shows how the safety requirements of the maglev track system derive from the general legal conditions for the safety of tracked transport. It is described how their compliance beyond the so called "development-accompanying" and "acceptance-preparatory" safety work can be assured for the Transrapid test layout (TVE) now building in Emsland and also for later application as public transport system in Germany within the meaning of the General Railway Act.
