This part of this European Standard lays down the technical requirements and the measurements to be made for the acceptance of work to re-profile both longitudinally and transversely the heads of railway rails, including the parts of switches and crossings that can be reprofiled.
For acceptance purposes, two classes of longitudinal profile and three classes of transverse profile tolerance are defined.
