Manual for Cooperation Contracts in international Passenger Traffic by Rail (MCOOP)
The MCOOP contains a boilerplate contract and general terms and conditions (GTC) as well as commentaries to these legal instruments which cover the most important legal issues arising from international cooperation of railway undertakings to provide carriage of passengers. It should contribute to legal certainty for international passenger traffic by rail, establish a single set of principles and permit coordinated and efficient management of contracts. The MCOOP is intended foremost for railway lawyers and specialists dealing with organisation and setting up the legal rules for cooperation between railway undertakings.
The MCOOP is now available in the three CIT languages English, French and German on the CIT website under the heading “
Passenger traffic > CIT documentation
” (member-restricted area).
