ONCF and UIC are organising the 5th International Seminar on Railway Safety and Security from 10 – 12 April 2013 in Tangier (Mövenpick Hotel). The seminar will cover five main themes, namely research in the fields of railway safety and security, safety culture and management, security management, and aspects of civil defence, followed by a general debate.
A technology exhibition will be held alongside the seminar.
On 12 April a technical visit will be organised to the site of the future high speed rail line currently under construction.
Formal invitations will be sent out shortly. The provisional programme and the registration form will be posted online during the course of the week.
In view of the planned opening of Morocco’s new TGV high speed rail service (ONCF), this seminar is of particular importance. The organisation of the seminar ties in with the global dimension of UIC’s activities as well as with the activities of the UIC African Region chaired by Mr Khlie.
