SGS in Spain has been endorsed by the Spanish national accreditation body (ENAC) to act as an Independent Notified Body for the assessment of control-command and signaling systems against the European technical specifications for interoperability (TSI NoBo).

This enables us to provide rail conformity assessment services for Technical Specifications of Interoperability (TSI), independent safety assessment (ISA) for rail systems and sub-systems, such as infrastructure, control-command and signaling, rolling stock, traffic management, etc.

The expansion of our scope of accreditation for railway conformity assessment services cements our position as a leader in testing, inspection and certification for the railway industry.

Alim Saidov, Executive Vice President, Industries & Environment, stated:

“Strong commitment by SGS management and technical teams has enabled this significant achievement, which positions SGS as a leading TIC company in rail certification. We will be able to actively contribute to the development of safe and sustainable rail networks, at a time when climate change concerns are undoubtedly requiring bold modal transfers in the transportation sector.”
