Colpofer effort in Ukraine's refugees emergency
Following the outbreak of the conflict in Ukraine, in March 2022 COLPOFER has created a joint Communication Network exchanging relevant information on a regular basis in order to support member companies and partner associations and organisations to tackle the challenges arising from this humanitarian crisis, as well as supporting refugees flows in a safe environment.
72nd Digital COLPOFER General Assembly, 12-13 November 2020
Due to the evolving situation of COVID-19 in Europe and with reference to the prescriptions issued by National Public Authorities and internal regulations provided by rail companies joining COLPOFER association, the 72nd Geneal Assembly was held on digital platform on 12-13 November 2020, in cooperation with DB Security Directorate.
The 71st COLPOFER General Assembly took place on 28-29 November 2019 in Prague. During the Assembly, titled “Security threats to passengers' service", security threats to rail transport have been analysed with the aim of developing new and innovative solutions for passengers' security.
During 2018 Colpofer has set up a coordinated training project among members, in order to allow those interested, to mutually achieve an increased level of information sharing concerning security best practices, know-how and expertise. WG Ticket Fraud started off the Programme with the “ticket checking best practice exchange and operational experience” between Trenitalia and SNCF. During the operational training the team concentrated the activities on validation and control of international tickets, with the aim of intercepting forged and/or modified titles held by travelers and delivering higher standards of cooperation between European railway companies, one of Colpofer main goals.
