Share this article

The UIC Track Expert Group (TEG) is proud to announce the publication of the following IRSs relating to the technical specifications of track components:

  • IRS 80864-1 – Technical specification for the supply of Sleeper Screws
  • IRS 80864-2 – Technical specification for the supply of Steel Track Bolts
  • IRS 80864-3 – Technical specification for the supply of Steel Spring Washers

In 2021, a group of experts specialising in railway track components started working not only to review and update the 864 series of UIC leaflets, but also to review their compatibility with other relevant regional and international standards published over the last number of years to ensure coherence between specifications.

This recently published edition of IRS 80864 parts 1, 2 and 3, “Technical Specification – Permanent way” is a first revision of the UIC Leaflet 864 series on track materials. No other complete standard or specification exists in this domain.

Special mention goes to all the experts and UIC staff involved in the production of this new IRS, particularly Stefano Rossi of RFI and Bernhard Knoll of ÖBB.

The experts’ work is continuing with a review of UIC Leaflets 864-4, 864-5, 864-6, 864-7 and 864-8.
