International Contingency Management
On 16th May 2018, the RNE General Assembly approved and published the International Contingency Management Handbook and its implementation from Timetable period 2019.
The purpose of this handbook is to describe the standards that allow the continuation of traffic flows at the highest possible level despite an international disruption and to assure transparency of the status of the disruption and its impact on traffic flows for all relevant stakeholders across Europe.
Also, RFC North Sea - Med published Re-Routing scenarios in order to deal with international disruption on our RFC.
Priority rules in case of disturbance
For all the countries of the corridor except Belgium, these rules, per country, can be downloaded here. They are also listed on RNE website.
For Belgium, these rules are available in Infrabel's network statement (§4.10)
