On 17 December 2020, the Competition Authority made public a document from the SNCF for which the incumbent rail operator sets out the reasons why it is requesting to be relieved, in whole or in part, of four of the twelve commitments it has entered into in 2014 and which have been made binding by the decision no. 14-D-11 of 2 October 2014. It also sets out in detail the content of the amendments that it wishes to see approved by the Competition Authority.
