This European Standard specifies the characteristics of the Passenger Alarm System. The aim of the

Passenger Alarm System is to:

a) permit passengers in case of emergency situations to inform the driver;

b) permit the driver to keep the train moving or to stop the train at a safe location;

c) stop the train automatically:

1) at a platform,

2) if there is no acknowledgement by the driver.

This European Standard covers the Passenger Alarm System (PAS) fitted to the passenger carrying rolling

stock and specifies:

— the functional requirements for an alarm triggered in the driving cab (Clause 6);

— the communication channel between the driver and passengers or on-board staff (6.4);

— the dynamic analysis of the Passenger Alarm System (Clause 7);

— the requirements for the degraded modes management (Clause 8);

— the safety related requirements (Clause 9);

— requirements for the Passenger Alarm Device and Passenger Alarm Device area (Clause 10).

This European Standard is applicable to rolling stock which are in the field of the Directive 2008/57/EC.

NOTE 1 Existing Passenger Alarm Systems may require modification to work in conjunction with vehicles that comply

with this standard.

NOTE 2 Most of the requirements of UIC 541–6 are compliant with this standard.

Other communications systems named 'communication device for passengers' or 'call for aid' in the CR LOC

and PAS TSI [1] respectively “Emergency call” or “Call for assistance” in the TSI PRM [3] are not covered by

this standard.

NOTE 3 prEN 16683, Railway applications – Call for aid and communication device – Requirements covers these

aspects.

This document specifies requirements for the:

— approval of training facilities, testing and maintaining the skills of aluminothermic welders and welding trainers. It applies to those aluminothermic welding processes compliant with the requirements of EN 14730-1. It requires that the system for training and testing of welders be approved by the railway authority;

— approval of aluminothermic welding contractors. It applies to those contractors using aluminothermic welding processes compliant with the requirements of EN 14730-1 and who employ welders in the possession of a valid permit to weld as defined in Clause 4 of this standard;

— acceptance of the final aluminothermic weld inspections and aluminothermic weld inspectors approved by the railway authority. It does not cover any previous weld inspections by the welder or others.

This document also applies to aluminothermic welds produced on Vignole railway rail 46 kg/m and above, as contained in EN 13674-1.
