The UK transposed the First Railway Package, which comprised three directives (2001/12/EC, 2001/13/EC and 2001/14/EC), in November and December 2005, principally through two sets of regulations implementing the Directives for Great Britain—the Railways Infrastructure (Access and Management) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/3049) and the Railway (Licensing of Railway Undertaking) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/3050).
