Rail certification services from SGS – enabling organizations to supply new/upgraded rolling stock to the industry.

Containers at harbour

The heavy emphasis on safety in the rail industry means the supply chain must meet a growing number of mandatory and voluntary regulations in order to trade. Our expertise in transport, logistics and certification make SGS your ideal partner to achieve rail and rolling stock certification.

Rolling Stock Certification Services

New and upgraded rolling stock (locomotives, coaches, multiple units and wagons) need to achieve certification against both mandatory and, in some circumstances, voluntary standards as required by legislation and industry schemes. Our rolling stock certification is carried out under the provisions of the new European Rail Directives and we can issue certificates compliant with these directives for any project with appropriate scope throughout the EU.

Other Rail Certification Services

Voluntary rail certification schemes help improve quality and consistency throughout the supply chain. These services focus on the quality of components and services supplied during rolling stock maintenance and overhaul, as well as the competence of the processes and personnel involved.

We conduct the appraisal of supply companies and issue certificates of approval under various schemes confirming that suppliers are deemed competent to provide their product/service.

Employ SGS to ensure your rolling stock, components and services meet legislative requirements with rail certification services.
