Information on actively using vehicles in the railway infrastructure operated and maintained by DB Netz AG.

Vehicles that have corresponding certification (homologation) may be actively used in the railway infrastructure operated and maintained by DB Netz AG.

Certification can take the form of formal acceptance in accordance with the EBO (Railway Construction and Operation Regulations) for older vehicles or as a commissioning permit in accordance with the TEIV (Trans-European Rail Interoperability Order) for newer vehicles.
