In the field of the welding fabrication of railway vehicles, the standard EN 15085 without any doubt has a fundamental importance in the international scenario; it contains a significant amount of shared knowledge and it represents, therefore, the level of technology acquired in this field, nationally and internationally. This makes it an indispensable tool for operators, system integrators, suppliers and manufacturers.
The standard is divided into 5 parts as follows:
Part 1: General
Part 2: Quality requirements and certification of the manufacturer
Part 3: Design requirements
Part 4: Requirements for construction
Part 5: Inspection, testing and documentation
The second part specifies the criteria for the definition of the minimum requirements which a Manufacturer that performs or subcontracts welding works, in new construction or maintenance, should refer to, in order to give evidence of his capability for operating in the field of rolling stock. The criteria that must be taken as a reference for the conformity assessment of the Company to the above requirements, by third parties recognized, if applicable, are specified as well.
Parts 3, 4 and 5 contain technical guidelines for the design, manufacture, inspection and testing of welded metal components of railway rolling stock.
IIS CERT is authorized for the certification of Manufacturer by the National Safety Authority (ANSF) and accredited by ACCREDIA in accordance with ISO/IEC 17065.
IIS CERT certifies companies' Fabrication Process according to EN 15085.
