Technical briefings for London and Utrecht clients

Technical briefings for London and Utrecht clients
14 February 2020

This month our Certification teams in Utrecht and London held two technical briefings for colleagues within the industry.

In Utrecht, the meeting focused on the Fourth Railway Package. The event, on February 4th, took place at the Inntel Hotel in Central Utrecht, with speakers from the Dutch regulator ILT, national rail operator, NS, as well as our Certification colleagues Michiel Vernooij, Jon van Gisbergen and Richard Gibney.

The UK version took place two days later at London’s Ironmongers’ Hall, where our experts delivered a briefing on the Common Safety Method, asking ‘What does ‘non-compliance’ mean for Directors'?

Our thanks to everyone who attended and contributed to the debates.

Introducing the Ricardo Compliance Tool

The briefings were also an opportunity to introduce audiences to the Ricardo Compliance Tool (RCT) and show how it could change their experiences of working with certification bodies in future.

The tool replaces the traditional "spreadsheets, project folders and documents" format with a collaborative platform that can support assessment projects from requirements capture to acceptance and certification.

As well as offering a built-in library of industry standards, the RCT acts as a central hub for compiling checklists, evidence, compliance arguments, reports and conclusions, and offers live progress dashboards to clients and assessors alike.
