Centre of Competence for Railway Civil Engineering and Fixed Inland  Waterway Installations

We are responsible for assessing technical safety aspects in procedures where civil engineering expertise is required, for example for planning permission, operating licences, type approvals, the further development of regulations, and safety supervision. In interdisciplinary tasks we handle the civil engineering issues. Our core activities include inspecting and checking the plausibility of applications, for example in terms of the statics of railway bridges, carriageway safety or loading gauge clearance.
