The 63rd COLPOFER General Assembly took place in Pietrarsa (Naples) on 4-5 February 2016. The event was an important occasion to discuss issues, share information and update members and external stakeholders on the current security topics within the railway network. The General Assembly was entitled ”The New European Challenges for the Railway Environment”. Our guests included speakers from the academic world, journalists and security experts from other sectors. We would like to thank our members for their active participation.
COLPOFER is one of the eleven associations representing the railway, public transport, and energy sectors as well as the recycling industry - all highly affected by metal theft – which are calling on EU policy makers to take action in order to prevent and counter metal theft in Europe. The coalition aims to raise awareness about the negative effects of metal theft on the functioning and quality of services of general interest and its overall impact on public life. In their common statement, the associations involved urge the EU policy makers to take appropriate steps areas in which Europe-wide action and cooperation is needed in order to complement measures already in force at national level and initiatives already undertaken by the concerned stakeholders.
