Product Acceptance

Ricardo Certification’s railway product certification service uses processes accredited under EN ISO17065 to demonstrate a product’s compliance against a range of international railway standards.

Our approach is based around unique and proven interpretative protocols that guide clients on the requirements of a particular standard and how to demonstrate compliance, ensuring consistency around large and complex standards.

In the majority of cases we conduct a preliminary assessment in order to give all parties confidence that the product, system or process in question is likely to achieve certification. This will usually be followed by audits, reviews of design documentation, witnessing of tests and on-site inspections, with evidence gathered into a Technical File that forms the basis for certification.
