After providing an assessment, SGS has awarded Taiyuan Heavy Industry Railway Transit Equipment with TSI certification for nine types of axles, wheels and wheelsets.

Taiyuan Heavy Industry Railway Transit Equipment Co., Ltd. (THRE) is a leading Chinese supplier of rolling stock components, including wheels, axles and wheelsets. SGS contacted THRE in 2013, when the Chinese government was encouraging the export of high level rolling stock components to Europe. SGS anticipated that the government would require THRE to obtain TSI certification.

On March 3, 2015, after the relationship between the two companies had grown, THRE awarded SGS a contract to provide assessment services. Over five days consecutive days in May, an international team of experts, led by SGS-CSTC, conducted an on site audit and assessment of production facilities. SGS CORREL Rail undertook the assessment. During that time, SGS took on the challenging task of conducting assessments for nine products across two manufacturing sites.

SGS provided THRE with TSI certification for nine types of wheels, axles and wheels in June 2015, after performing an in office review. The work was completed on time and on budget, to THRE’s full satisfaction.
