The article discusses how the European Commission Directives on railway interoperability have helped member states in harmonizing and reshaping their technical and safety standards. The European Railway Agency (ERA) led the efforts in harmonizing standards by developing a reference document. In Great Britain, the Office of Rail Regulation is responsible for enforcing safety regulation. Meanwhile, the Rail Accident Investigation Board is responsible for accident investigation.
