The scope of the NRB is to provide a tool of dialogue, consultation and exchange of information betweenthe Agency and the Representative Bodies representing the railway sector to improve: collaboration, coordination and communication.
The focus of the NRB is to take an overview of the development of, and progress with the Agency’s Work Programme. It is not the forum for discussing the content of individual Agency Recommendations. All such issues should be referred back to the appropriate Working Party. The NRB is also dedicated to the handling of sensitive issues of a “system integration” nature which have significant impact for the sector organisations and which cannot be solved within Agency Working Parties
The NRB is composed by:
1. the Executive Director and the Heads of Unit of the Agency assisted by project officers, if necessary;
2. two representatives for each Representative Body, and
3. the Chairman of GRB
4. an Agency officer as coordinator/ secretary of the NRB.
