Brief history

The railways of Europe originated as separate concerns. After the First Great War a desire for cooperation between the nations grew, with the aim of standardising industry practices.

Ticket revenue splitting was originally undertaken with the UIC Franc currency equivalent. The UIC classification and UIC Country Codes allowing precise determination of rolling stock capabilities and ownership.

Mission

The UIC's mission is to promote rail transport at world level and meet the challenges of mobility and sustainable development.

Objectives

The UIC's main objectives are to:

  • Facilitate the sharing of best practices among members (benchmarking)
  • Support members in their efforts to develop new business and new areas of activities
  • Propose new ways to improve technical and environmental performance
  • Promote interoperability, create new world standards for railways (including common standards with other transport modes)
  • Develop centres of competence (High Speed, Safety, Security, e-Business, …)
