Noise bonus

This online application is used for registering low-noise freight wagons.


Product information

This noise bonus is a noise-differentiated track access charge component in accordance with the Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/429, setting the terms for charges due to the effects of noise, thereby giving an incentive to retrofit freight wagons with low-noise braking technology.
