Guideline CMR-CIM-SMGS [PDF]
Date April 2017
The CIT and IRU developed a Guideline on the CMR-CIM-SMGS liability regimes. The aim is to publish a comparison between international rail (COTIF/CIM and SMGS) and international road transport law (CMR).
The particular added value of this comparison of legal regimes is that it includes, for the first time, both the CIM and the SMGS provisions, and the comparison extends in geographical terms beyond the scope of COTIF/CIM to that of the SMGS.
