LEMA (Electric Locomotives with Asynchronous Motors) locomotives, known as Transmontana V3.1 and V3.2, obtained the CE certificate of conformity according to the Technical Specification of Interoperability – Regulation (EU) 2016/919 of May 2016 on the technical specification for interoperability relating to the “control-command and signaling subsystems of the rail system in the European Union.
The Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSIs) define the technical and operational standards which must be met by each subsystem or part of subsystem in order to meet the essential requirements and ensure the interoperability of the railway system of the European Union.
The notified bodies (NoBos) are independent organisations responsible for assessing the conformity of interoperability constituents and subsystems regarding the requirements of the Technical Specification for Interoperability. The NoBos apply the procedure of CE verification of interoperability constituents and subsystems according to Directive (EU) 2016/797 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 May 2016 on the interoperability of the rail system within the European Union.
LEMA locomotive has all four of the CE certifications for railway vehicles, after the assessment of the following EU Regulations:
- Regulation (EU) 1302/2014 of 18 November 2014 concerning a technical specification for interoperability relating to the “rolling stock – locomotives and passenger rolling stock” subsystem of the rail system in the European Union.
- Regulation (EU) 1303/2014 of 18 November 2914 concerning the technical specification for interoperability relating to safety in railway tunnels” of the rail system of the European Union.
- Regulation (EU) 1304/2014 of 26 November 2014 on the technical specification for interoperability relating to the subsystem “rolling stock – noise” amending Decision 2008/232/EC and repealing Decision 2011/229/EU.
