The main concept of the project, described in this paper, is to specify the conditions for cross-accepted certification throughout 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. With this purpose, a common understanding of transients, very short and very high interference currents, and a harmonised test procedure is being developed. By also addressing non-electrified lines, the EUREMCO project will cover the whole European railway network. This paper shows the work that has been undertaken within the EUREMCO project. Beginning with a description of the project and its objectives, it ends with a discussion of the results. The project funded by the FP7 European Program was finished on December 30th, 2014.
