VEHICLE STANDARDIZATION WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE UIC

DIE NORMUNG DES FAHRZEUGMATERIALS IM RAHMEN DER UIC

Since the earliest days of the railways, efforts have been made internationally to standardize rolling and traction stock as well as operating regulations so as to allow cross-frontier services to be operated between the various countries. Over the last 100 years a number of international organizations have applied themselves to the achievement of greater standardization. These endeavours received new impulse after the last war, when it was sought not only to simplify cross-frontier procedures but also better to meet the needs of railway users and to achieve greater economy in vehicle procurement and upkeep. As a further step in this direction, in 1974 the UIC "Vehicles and Railway Traction" committee redefined the scope of its standardization efforts.
