The authorisation for defining the penalties in that ministerial decision (article 32 of Safety Directive 2004/49/EC) has been given by the article 27 of the national law 3534 (Official Gazette of the Hellenic Republic A’ 40/23.02.2007). The application forms for safety certificates part A and part B of railway undertakings and safety authorisation of infrastructure manager, as well as the guidelines for compilation are provided in the following files:
 
 
The relevant fees and the duration of validity for safety certificate of a railway undertaking and safety authorisation of an infrastructure manager are defined in article 3 of the legislative act that has been published in the Official Gazette of the Hellenic Republic Α’ 246/18.12.2012.
 
In the specific field, beyond the presidential decree 160/2007 and the above-mentioned ministerial decision, there has been published the Regulation 653/2007 of Committee of 13 June 2007 on the use of a common European format for safety certificates and application documents in accordance with article 10 of Directive 2004/49/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and on the validity of safety certificates delivered under Directive 2001/14/EC. Moreover, the Commission Regulation (EC) No 352/2009 of 24 April 2009, on the adoption of a common safety method on risk evaluation and assessment as referred to in article 6(3)(a) of Directive 2004/49/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, as well as the Commission Decision 2009/460/EC of 5 June 2009 on the adoption of a common safety method for assessment of achievement of safety targets, as referred to in article 6 of Directive 2004/49/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, have been also published. Commission Decision of 19 July 2010, on Common Safety Targets as referred to in Article 7 of Directive 2004/49/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, establishes the values of the first set of Common Safety Targets based on National Reference Values, in compliance with Article 7(3) of Directive 2004/49/EC and following the methodology laid down by the Decision 2009/460/EC, whereas Commission Decision of 23 April 2012, on the second set of common safety targets as regards the rail system, establishes the second set of Common Safety Targets of the rail system in accordance with Directive 2004/49/EC and Decision 2009/460/EC.

The assessment of the conformity with the requirements for obtaining safety certificates is performed according to the Commission Regulation (EU) No 1158/2010 of 9 December 2010, on a common safety method for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining railway safety certificates, whereas the assessment of the conformity with the requirements for obtaining safety authorisation is conducted according to the provisions of the Commission Regulation (EU) No 1169/2010 of 10 December 2010, on a common safety method for assessing conformity with the requirements for obtaining a railway safety authorisation.
 
The Directive 2004/49/EC on safety on the Community’s railways has been modified by Directive 2008/110/EC and Directive 2009/149/EC. The new element introduced with Directive 2008/110/EC is that each vehivle, before it is placed in service or used on the network, shall have an entity in charge of maintenance assigned to it and this entity shall be registered in the NVR (National Vehicle Register) in accordance with Article 33 of the Railway Interoperability Directive 2008/57/EC. A railway undertaking, an infrastructure manager or a keeper may be an entity in charge of maintenance. The entity shall ensure that the vehicles for which it is in charge of maintenance are in a safe state of running by means of a system of maintenance. In the case of freight wagons, each entity in charge of maintenance shall be certified by the National Safety Authority. Where the entity in charge of maintenance is a railway undertaking or an infrastructure manager, compliance with the requirements for the system of maintenance of the entity in charge shall be checked by the relevant national safety authority pursuant to the procedures referred to in Articles 10 or 11 and shall be confirmed on the certificates specified in those procedures. Additional provisions are foreseen for the fulfilment of the above-mentioned requirements with the article 37 of the Law 3891 (Official Gazette of the Hellenic Republic A’ 188/4.11.2010) on the restructure, rationalisation and development of OSE (Hellenic Railways) and TRAINOSE and other provisions for the rail sector. The Directive 2009/149/EC modified the Annex I of the Directive 2004/49/EC and specifically, it brings about changes regarding common safety indicators and common methods to calculate accident costs.
 
These Directives, 2008/110/EC and 2009/149/EC, were integrated into National Law with the presidential decree 71 (Official Gazette of the Hellenic Republic A’ 127/03.08.2010) entitled “Amendment of presidential decree 160/2007 (A’ 201) for the adaptation of the Greek legislation to the provisions of Directive 2008/110/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 December 2008 amending Directive 2004/49/EC on safety on the Community’s railways, and of  Commission Directive 2009/149/EC of 27 November 2009 amending Directive 2004/49/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards common safety indicators and common methods to calculate accident costs”.
