Who can apply
All applicants, as defined in Article 15 of the Regulation (EU) 913/2010, can apply for capacity on ScanMed RFC. An applicant means a railway undertaking (RU) or an international grouping of RUs or other persons or legal entities, such as shippers, freight forwarders, and combined transport operators, with a commercial interest in procuring infrastructure capacity.
The Executive Boards of the Rail Freight Corridors also developed Framework for Capacity Allocation (FCA), as provided for in art.14.1 of the Freight Regulation, which constitutes the legal basis for capacity allocation by the C-OSS. You can download the FCA from our Customer Information Platform here: FCA TT2020 and FCA TT 2021.
