The Rail Working Group

The 2001 Cape Town Convention on international interests in mobile equipment

The Rail Working Group (RWG) is a not-for-profit group established at the request of UNIDROIT (the International Institute for the Unification of Private Law) to represent the position of the rail industry relating to adoption and implementation of the 2007 Luxembourg Protocol to the Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment on matters relating to railway rolling stock (the Luxembourg Rail Protocol).

 

Our key task is to ensure that the Luxembourg Rail Protocol is brought into force in as many countries as possible as quickly as possible but ensuring that the operation of the Protocol does not lose touch with the commercial realities of the rail industry.

The RWG

  • Actively participates in the preparation for the implementation of the Luxembourg Rail Protocol and acts as an interface with
    UNIDROIT, OTIF and the Luxembourg government in
    connection therewith
  • Participates in seminars and generally promotes the signature and ratification of the Luxembourg Rail Protocol
  • Issues publications and position papers relating to the Protocol
  • Acts as a forum for consideration of the practical aspects of the operation of the Luxembourg Rail Protocol by the rail industry
