What are TAF/TAP TSIs?

The Commission Regulations (EC) 62/2006 and 454/2011 are now (2019) in the implementation phase. Those regulation define the Technical Specification for the Interoperability of the electronic data exchange for Freight (TAF) and Passegners (TAP) sectors and require the Railway Industry to exchange messages in a standardized format for

  • Path requests
  • Train preparation, consignment notes
  • Train running, forecast
  • Service disruptions
  • Estimated time of arrival
  • Train identification
  • Wagon movements
  • Rolling stock technical data
  • Locations and company codes
  • Passenger platforms

    We can operate your Common Interface

    The Common Interface is both a standard protocol and a software, already implemented by UIC, via the Common Component Group. In that group almost all major european railway infrastructure managers and train operators have partecipated. Our competencies have been hired by UIC during the design, architecture validation and testing of the Common Interface, so indeed we are a very special partner for your compliance with TAF/TAP TSI. Once you get the Common Interface license you will need to install it, to configure it and to operate it, to ensure efficiency and high availability. Fretless Idea can do that for you. Once you activate the Common Interface you will gain:

  • message flows -inbound and outbound- according to TAF/TAP TSIs
  • signing, encryption and delivery of outgoing messages,
  • authenticity verification, decryption and format validation of incoming messages
  • mapping from your current messages -almost any format, including emails- to TAF/TAP formats and vice versa.
