Common principles for the determination of own value of security and direct/indirect economic costs: For their own value of the security, to the assessment of whether or not the available estimates are appropriate or not, be based on the following considerations:-the estimates should be based on a system for the determination of the value of the reduced risk of death in the transport sector and follow an approach that builds on the payment the will according to the specified preferences ,-the selection of respondents used to fix the values shall be representative of the affected population. The selection shall in particular reflect the distribution of age/income in addition to other relevant socio-economic/demographic characteristics of the population,-method to calculate the value of the payment will: the questionnaire should be designed so that the questions are unique/makes sense for respondents.

The value of direct or indirect costs to be determined on the basis of the actual social cost.

Both values will be calculated from the railway undertaking on the basis/infrastructure regulate stewardships of their experience. Also includes costs related to the hiring of vehicles to replace what is damaged.

5.5. With "the cost of delays as a result of the accident" will mean the pengemessige value of the delays for users of rail transport (passengers and freight enterprises) as a result of accidents, calculated from the following model: VT = The pengemessige the value of travel time gain the value of time for a train passenger (per hour) VTP = [VT for work commuters] * [Average percentage of job commuters per year] + [VT for other travelers] * [Average percentage other travelers per year] VT measured in EUR per passenger per hour value of time for a freight train ( per hour) VTF = [VT for freight train] * [tonne-km)/(train-km)] VT is measured in EUR per tonne of goods per hour average number of tonnes of freight per train per year = (tonne-km)/(train-km) CM = the cost of a one-minute delay for a train passenger train CMP = K ₁ * (VTP/60) * [(passenger-km)/(train-km)] the average number of passengers per train per year = (passenger-km)/(train-km) freight train CMF = K * ₂ (VTF/60) Factors K ₁ and K is the value of ₂ between time and the value of the delay , calculated through preference surveys, in order to take into account that the loss of time as a result of the delays perceived significantly more negative than the normal travel time.

The cost of an accident = CMP * (the number of minutes delay for passenger trains) + CMF * (the number of minutes delay for freight train) scope for the model the cost of delays should be calculated for all accidents, both severe and non-severe.
Delays should be calculated as follows:-actual delays on the rail line where the accident occurred,-actual delays or, if this is not possible calculate, calculated delays on other affected lines.
