Department 7 of the Bundesnetzagentur supervises non-discriminatory access to rail infrastructure and non-discriminatory charges for its use. Another of our tasks is checking compliance with statutory pricing principles and price levels. The Rail Department also monitors the market.
Section 701 of Department 7 is chiefly responsible for legal policy issues. Section 702 addresses economic policy issues, market monitoring and statistics.
The operational tasks of rail regulation are performed by Section 703 (Access to Rail Infrastructure and Services), Section 704 (Access to Service Facilities and Services) and Section 705 (Charges for Networks, Service Facilities and Services).
