The EUREMCO project's objective is to harmonise and reduce the certification process of rail vehicles for electromagnetic compatibility. The main concept of the project is to specify the conditions for cross-accepted certification all around Europe, through sound scientific methodologies allowing for the identification of the transfer functions to be applied to results obtained on different test tracks in different countries, for the same power supply system. As well as this, a common understanding of transients, very short and very high interference currents, and a harmonised test procedure is to be developed. By also addressing non-electrified lines, the EUREMCO project covers the whole European railway network. This paper shows the work that has been and is being undertaken within the EUREMCO project, and the results achieved so far. Beginning with a description of the project and its objectives, it ends with a discussion of the results achieved so far. EUREMCO finishes on September 30th, 2014.
