New rail services

We are overseeing the opening of the General Interest Railway Network (RFIG) to new railway services. Specifically, we published the proposals for new passenger rail services on public service lines and, at the request of the stakeholders, we conducted the economic equilibrium test to determine if the new service proposed jeopardises the economic balance of a public service contract.

The economic equilibrium test is governed by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1795 of 20 November 2018, laying down procedure and criteria for the application of the economic equilibrium test pursuant to Article 11 of Directive 2012/34/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council.

Railway companies that intend to provide a new passenger rail transport service that coincides with one subject to public service requirements must notify the CNMC by submitting the following form:

Las autoridades competentes que hayan autorizado un servicio sujeto a obligaciones de servicio público en el itinerario de que se trate, cualquier empresa ferroviaria que esté ejecutando el servicio afectado y los administradores de infraestructuras podrán solicitar la prueba de equilibrio económico en el plazo de un mes desde la notificación de la información sobre el nuevo servicio de transporte de viajeros. Para solicitar la prueba a la CNMC deberán utilizar el siguiente formulario:
