Abstract [en]

This deliverable is dedicated to the area of the third work package of CATRIN covering new member states’ policy and implementation problems as well as data availability. The objective of already submitted Deliverable 5 was to review data sources and information available in new member states which can be used for cost allocation studies. This deliverable addresses the CATRIN Task 3.1 “Review of important issues in transport policy”, in which the main objective is to provide an indication on the general assumptions, preconditions and key factors for ensuring a fair and efficient pricing policy at country level.The insights from the EC transport policy prove that some characteristics as basic preconditions for the implementation of fair pricing reforms in transport can be identified. Those include:

• The non-discrimination principle aiming at providing a charging system that does not discriminate between operators and/or Member States.

• The transparency principle (cost allocation), implying that the required charges (to the user) should be determined in a transparent way. This has also implied, in presence of natural monopoly, the danger of anticompetitive collusion and/or the concentration of market power in particular operators, the establishment of independent authorities able to guarantee the third party right (new entrants) to a fair charging, e.g. in the case of air and rail sector.

• Consultation as a general method of defining and implementing charging involving stakeholders.
