According to article 18 of Regulation (EU) 913/2010, Rail Freight Corridor North Sea - Baltic draws up, regularly updates and publishes a Corridor Information Document (CID). The CID is divided into five sections to clarify the specificity and independence of the key content of the document, and to facilitate the organisation and updating of the information. The Corridors together with RNE developed harmonised texts for all Corridors valid for the Section 1, Section 2 , Section 3 and Section 4.
The five sections of the CID are as follows:
Section 1 - Generalities
Shows the way the Rail Freight Corridor North-Sea Baltic North Sea - Baltic is organized and provides an overview of the information in the CID.
Section 2 - Network Statement Excerpts
Provides relevant information of the network statements regarding the eight countries involved in the Corridor.
Section 3 - Terminal Description
Provides key information regarding the terminals that are part of the Corridor.
Section 4 - Procedures for Capacity and Traffic Management
Provides all the information about the rules and procedures inherent to capacity and traffic management, namely the priority rules for the capacity allocation.
Presents the strategic objectives pursued by the Corridor, the chief measures taken to set up by the Rail Freight Corridor North-Sea Baltic and the investments planned for the short and medium term.
The CID is a single document and therefore all five sections should be considered as integrated. However, the five sections may have different updating needs.
