    Details

    Summary UIC Leaflet 565-1 applies to the single-tier and multi-tier vehicles used in passenger night services offering sleeping accommodation: in compartments with one to four sleeper berths, and/or in compartments with four to six couchettes. It sets out the special and/or additional requirements as well as any departures from the UIC provisions generally applicable to passenger coaches, in connection, for instance, with water and power supply, air-conditioning, lighting, intercom arrangements and public address system. It indicates the fundamental points to be borne in mind as regards the spatial layout of the vehicle and describes the modules to be considered in respect of the interior fitting-out of the vehicle (e.g. compartments, toilets). The leaflet also proposes specific features which might be introduced to improve the safety of passengers and attendants, these safety facilities having been defined, tested and validated by the "Safety in Night Traffic" Working Party. Application of the provisions of this leaflet is obligatory. The recommendatory nature of certain provisions is made clear in the wording of the passages in question. The leaflet applies to future orders for vehicles of new design as well as to existing vehicles undergoing extensive renovation and conversion.
