Rail Industry Supplier Accreditation (RISAS) Services

Rail Industry Supplier Accreditation Scheme (RISAS) services from SGS – independent assessment of your capability to provide maintenance and overhaul services to the rail industry.

As a supplier to the railway industry, demonstrating that you have the processes, competences, resources, and procedures that comply with quality and regulatory requirements is vital. That is why a cross-industry working group in the UK has developed the Rail Industry Supplier Accreditation Scheme (RISAS). It provides a single, third-party assessment that identifies RISAS approved suppliers for defined product groups. As a Railway Industry Supplier Body (RISAB), our RISAS services provide you with independent assessment of your organization.

Why choose RISAS services from SGS?

We can help you meet the requirements of the Supplier Assessment Module RISAS/003:

  • Ensure that you have the right systems, processes, competences, resources and procedures
  • Manage risks that arise from railway industry applications
  • Demonstrate that you are certified to deliver the requirements of particular specifications
  • Confirm that you are RISAS approved and deemed competent to provide your products and services to the railway industry

Trusted RISAS services from a leading supplier

In 2011, we acquired Correl Rail, a leading provider of services for the rail industry and the only fully independent UK-based notified body. As a result, we can now serve the entire rail industry. We are also at the heart of European rolling stock certification practice development through our involvement on both national committees and our role as technical secretariat of the Notified Body Rail Sub-Group for Rolling Stock.

As one of the first companies in the UK to be accredited as RISAB under RISAS, we are able to carry out the appraisal of supply companies and issue certificates of approval under the scheme.

Our RISAS services include technical assessments and certification of suppliers for the following product groups:

  • Running gear
  • Brake products
  • Mechanical equipment
  • Electrical equipment
  • Electric traction equipment
  • Diesel traction equipment
  • Transmission equipment
  • Train borne safety and monitoring equipment
  • Door and windscreen equipment
  • Train interior equipment

We also offer assessment, approval and certification of entities in charge of maintenance (in line with the UK process).
