Silver for the BVV management system

By Tuesday January 4th, 2022No Comments

Certification according to ISO/TS 22163 (IRIS)

A nice Christmas message from the European Railway Industry Association – and confirmation that our management system more than meets current rail industry standards.

With the IRIS Certification®-QUALITY PERFORMANCE LEVEL in silver for BVV, a piece of hard work received its well-deserved recognition before Christmas. IRIS, UNIFE’s set of rules published in 2006, is a global supplier evaluation system that makes it easier to compare suppliers, especially in terms of how well they meet the requirements of a quality management system.  UNIFE is the Union des Industries Ferroviaires Européennes, IRIS means International Railway Standard written out. As an evaluation method, the certification is known and recognized worldwide in the railroad sector.  In the meantime, more than 2200 companies worldwide have been certified by the IRIS system.

All IRIS-certified companies receive a performance rating at the end of the certification process: bronze, silver and gold, with gold only being awarded since September of last year. A great challenge for us at BVV!
