Intermodal Loading Units (ILUs) loaded on suitable wagons or bogies may exceed in their upper part the loading gauge permitted on the line.

This IRS sets out the requirements for the coding system intended to ensure the compatibility of ILUs loaded on adapted wagons or bogies with the permissible profile for combined transport lines and the safety requirements specific to combined transport.

Appendix H of this IRS provides:

- the procedure for the recognition by UIC of the conformity assessment bodies that are in charge of coding according to this IRS,

In particular, the present IRS sets out the requirements for:
