Following today´s special meeting initiated by Mr. Adolf Jílek, Chairman of the Management Board of the Railway Infrastructure Administration, state organization with Mr. Pavel Habarta, SŽDC´s Executive Director, newly stipulated decision-making principles related to the signing procedure of legal documents by SŽDC´s 2nd Deputy Director General come into force . The chairman of the Management Board and Pavel Habarta, SŽDC´s Executive Director have reached an agreement at the time when the issue of interpretation of legal effects of board meetings after the so-called delivery of the resolution signed by the Management Board was publicized in the media.
Thursday´s issue of Journal E15 (23rd February 2012) included an article about the Railway Infrastructure Administrations (SŽDC), state organization presenting incomplete information and statements which might have been the product of misunderstanding on the side of the Ministry of Transport. Therefore SŽDC considers it important to clarify this situation. SŽDC is obliged to follow valid legal regulations, not any points of view or assumptions. Since we take it for wrong to fuel this by media targeted pressure towards SŽDC, we refuse to comment on further progress of those media issues, with the exception of the following information.

09.02.2012 Consolidation of controlling and decision-making processes of the Railway Infrastructure Administration (SŽDC), state organization
Following today´s meeting of SŽDC´s Management Board, stricter terms related to control and approval processes have been applied with a view to stabilizing SŽDC as a standard firm. The so-called „four-eye principle“ has been introduced, i.e. a rule specifying that key documents will always be approved and signed not only by Ing. Pavel Habarta, SŽDC Executive Director but also by Ing. Bohuslav Navrátil, the newly-appointed Deputy DG for Rail Operability. Ing. Navrátil also acts as the legally qualified representative of SŽDC as the rail operator. All this leads to the modification of obsolete rules related to decision-making principles of SŽDC as the decision-making and the responsibility have been split among more managers of the company.
