Ensure your critical equipment and systems meet requirements
The complex interdependencies of signalling, telecommunications, power supply and other safety critical equipment and systems in the rail sector pose real challenges for operators and manufacturers. It is essential to ensure that safety, performance, quality and interoperability objectives are met as cost-efficiently as possible.
Additionally, European Train Control System (ERTMS/ETCS), a uniform control and train protection system, is set to replace the existing safety systems in Europe, presenting rail businesses with additional requirements that must be fulfilled.
TÜV SÜD Rail has the experience and skills to provide comprehensive support with our independent testing and inspection services for all aspects of signalling systems. Through TÜV SÜD Nederland B.V., a Notified Body, we are able to facilitate a quick and efficient integration of EC verification and conformity assessment tasks.
