The liberalization of European rail transport poses a particular challenge for the railway industry. With increasing competition, especially in the European Union’s goods market, railways need “ready to run” transportation systems that meet the many different requirements of individual countries as well as comply with the restrictive regulatory requirements. In parallel, railway operators expect the railway supply industry to remain competitive, and to provide proven solutions for cars, facilities and operating equipment that meet high quality standards.

What is IRIS certification?

IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard) is an initiative led by the Union of the European Railway Industries (UNIFE) and largely instigated and supported by four of the largest system manufacturers (Bombardier, Siemens, Alstom , AnsaldoBreda). IRIS is based on the internationally recognized quality standard ISO 9001, specific to the railway industry, designed for the evaluation of management systems. The underlying aim of IRIS is to improve the quality and reliability of rolling stock produced, by improving the whole supply chain.

What are the key benefits?

â–  Proof of your companys status as a quality supplier

â–  International identification and recognition in the railway industry: IRIS certified companies are included in a UNIFE database, which is used by buyers of major railway industry manufacturers.

â–  Quality improvement throughout the whole supply chain: due to standardized requirements, improved product quality and an efficient chain of procedures

â–  Decisive advantage for suppliers looking to secure or maintain contracts in the industry.

â–  Cost saving: due to uniform terms of qualification, reduced cost to obtain IRIS certification through an integrated certification to both ISO 9001 and IRIS

â–  Time saving: instead of numerous individual audits from your customers, allows one overall audit
