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.
