10.4.5 Case Study - European CENELEC Railway Standards CENELEC

An example of successful implementation of RAMS standards is the case of CENELEC (Comité Européen de Normalisation Électrotechnique) railway standards. CENELEC have integrated RAMS standards and they have been successfully implemented at practically every new international rail technology project. These standards do not apply to heavy rail systems only, as their heading "Railway applications" may imply, but also to light rail and urban mass transportation, including people-mover systems.1
