Obtaining Designated Body Accreditation in Slovakia and Estonia

VUZ has extended its activities into two additional EU countries: Slovakia and Estonia. VUZ’s Slovak subsidiary has successfully met all the requirements of the accreditation process and VUZ Slovakia, s.r.o. is now, next to other activities performed so far, authorised to provide services of an accredited Designated Body (DeBo) for the Slovak Republic (assessment of compliance of European railway system products with the Slovak national rules), and services of an ECM certification body within the European Union (certification of maintenance systems of railway rolling stock and rolling stock maintenance functions).

Similarly, at the beginning of December 2021 the Estonian Consumer Protection and Technical Regulatory Authority approved VUZ as a Designated Body (DeBo) for several projects falling under its competence.
