Quality Management System in Railway (IRIS)

A highly trained team is important to be first in the cluster in an increasingly competitive transport and mobility industry. The global railway sectors are facing greater legal requirements. Digital innovation develops the industry on an unparalleled scale and exposes companies - from OEMs, suppliers, to distributors - to new risks. Consumer demand has never been greater for safety, the environment and social responsibility.

Ensure that your teams are equipped with the skills and knowledge to deal with these challenges with Bureau Verita's range of training transport and mobility solutions.

ISO / TS 22163 (formerly known as IRIS) training
Actors throughout the railway chain must show their commitment to quality. ISO / TS 22163 is the world's leading quality management system for the railway industry. Bureau Veritas training for ISO / TS 22163 provides your team with the knowledge and skills required to implement, maintain and review ISO / TS 22163 quality management systems.

You will learn all the essential information about the certification process, correct interpretation and understanding of the requirements, as well as its specific assessment method in an overall way. You get tips and practical solutions on how to introduce the IRIS standard effectively for your company.

The opportunity also aims, among other things, to practice process-oriented auditing, to practice the internal auditors' correct behavior and to deepen your new knowledge through many exercises.
