Product information

When the 12-digit vehicle number is entered in full, information is displayed on whether a network compatibility declaration exists for the vehicle and under which conditions the vehicle can be used on our network.

Please note that database entry is mandatory only for use of tractive power units and trainsets on the ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG network.

This database also contains special-purpose vehicles, passenger and freight trains that have been licensed on the ÖBB-Infrastruktur network following successful network suitability testing from 1 January 2012 onwards. In addition, we are continuously adding vehicles licensed prior to 2012 so that we can provide an up-to-date overview of vehicles licensed to run on the ÖBB-Infrastruktur network following successful network suitability testing. Vehicles with unrestricted authorisation for use in international cross-border rail transport (RIC, RIV, etc.) are not recorded in the database.
