Ricardo Certification and Testing

Ricardo Certification and Testing

About us

We provide independent system-wide assurance and rolling stock testing services for clients across the world.

From a global network of offices, we offer accredited independent assurance services - including Notified and Designated Body, Assessment Body and Independent Safety Assessment - with a focus on helping our clients understand the regulatory landscape and secure certification as efficiently as possible.

Meanwhile our in-house  test and measurement services for the rail sector, based in the Netherlands, offer many years' experience of performing test programmes in the rail environment, be it signaling systems, brake systems or electrical behavior of rail vehicles  

Our origins lie in the rail sector, where we have performed independent assessment roles on a range of high-profile projects. But with increasingly complex regulation coming into force in fields such as power generation and automotive manufacturing, we can also bring our proven assessment methodologies to clients within these, and other, sectors.
