It was presented in Brussels on October 27th 2009. Currently its Conclusions and Recommendations are in process of dissemination throughout Europe.
It defines the minimum design parameters that EU locomotives should meet in order to implement the FERRMED Standards, particularly long and heavy trains. The tools discussed are: power, pantograph, adhesion, coupling, traction, braking system, interoperability, ergonomics and safety, signage, noise and energy efficiency, among others.
