With this draft, the European Commission intends to eliminate ambiguity and provide clarification regarding some of the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 1371/2007. For instance, cases of “force majeure”, in which no liability is assumed for delays, are defined more clearly. Furthermore, the new version contains more detailed provisions on accessibility. Whereas the Federal Chamber of Labour (BAK) welcomes the noticeable trend towards stronger rights of rail passengers, it takes a highly critical view of some of the provisions.
