The requirement for approval of railway rolling stock by the Railway Authority (DÚ) for operation on the railway lines of the Czech Republic is stipulated by Act no 266/1994 Coll., as amended.
The Act further stipulates conditions under which the Railway Authority may approve the rail vehicle for operation. The conditions include either submission of the compliance certificate issued by a notified body (in case of railway vehicles assessed pursuant to TSI), or positive assessment of the submitted documentation and the necessary tests implemented either directly by the Railway Authority or by the Railway Authority appointed legal entity (in all other cases).
The VÚKV a.s. is the legal entity authorised by the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic for testing and overall assessment of rolling stock subsequently used as the basis of the Railway Authority decisions. The VÚKV a.s. is further associated partner of several notified bodies whose power also covers the Czech Republic.
