As a business in the rail sector, whether you are a system supplier, component manufacturer or operator, you need certificates, certifications and reports from independent third parties in order to qualify your railway and traffic products. The responsible safety authorities require these documents before they can approve your products and systems for sale in the market.
Our comprehensive services assist and support you from pre-assessment and assessment to the approval. Our independent assessment services are based on legislation as well as on rules and standards relating to safety, interoperability, quality and conformity.
We have been active in the European and international railway business for a long time and therefore become a leading provider of services relating to the assessment and certification of rail systems and traffic engineering.

In cross-border rail traffic, the interoperability of vehicles, infrastructure, and control and signaling technology is becoming more important. We help you to ensure the conformity of legal regulations as well as voluntary requirements. A complete and effective assessment of railway systems and products considerably reduces the risk that your product will not be approved, or that you will not be allowed to put it on the market. We will help you to access markets with pre-qualified products. And you can use the results of the assessment for marketing purposes and thereby increase customer confidence.
