Leaflet on procedures for obtaining derogations or equivalences of ES-TRIN for specific craft

The CESNI Secretariat is regularly asked by the public for information on the procedure for derogations and equivalences from technical requirements. In order to ensure transparent and comprehensive information, in the context of both the EU and the CCNR legal frameworks, CESNI decided to publish a leaflet on its website. The procedure described facilitates the gaining of experience with pilot projects (e.g., alternative fuels) and actively supports innovation and greening of the fleet.
