According to Railway Law, if the dominant company of the railway concern is at the same time infrastructure manager of public railways infrastructure, but the dependent company is railway carrier, then essential functions must be carried out by another dependent company from this railway concern and which meets the requirements of independence.
As set out in Directive 2012/34/EU, member states shall ensure that the essential functions determining equitable and non-discriminatory access to infrastructure, are entrusted to bodies or firms that do not themselves provide any rail transport services. Regardless of organisational structures, this objective shall be shown to have been achieved.
