Company Codes (RICS)

The company code (also called RICS RICS Company code (also called RICS code or railway code) : “Railway Interchange Coding System” or railway code) is a 4 digit code used in various applications to identify a company involved in the railway business.

 Company code and UIC membership

The company code is not strictly related to UIC membership. In order to obtain a company code, UIC members are invited to fill in the separate company allocation form. Non-UIC members may also request a code under the same conditions.

 Code allocation table

The code allocation table is available as an Excel or PDF document providing the allocated company codes sorted by code. The code allocation table is updated regularly (at least every quarter). For each code the name of the company, its acronym of and its full name are published. Updates since the last publication are indicated with an “x” in the column “recent”. Code keepers are kindly advised to check their data and to inform UIC in case of updates or errors (see forms below).
