Our comprehensive knowledge of UK assurance and certification regimes ensures your project will gain approvals in the most cost-effective manner possible.
Design Assurance – Compliance Management
We have detailed knowledge of railway standards and legislation, from Directives and TSIs, to EuroNorms and UK notified technical rules. We understand their application to the approvals process, enabling us to work closely with you to ensure the process is agreed and applied in the most efficient way possible.
Whether new build systems or engineering change, we will identify the relevant standards and specific clauses, work with you to produce the necessary compliance evidence and manage the delivery of submissions to regulatory bodies.
Infrastructure – Rolling Stock, OTM/OTP
We have deep understanding of standards applicable to infrastructure – Energy, Structures, Signalling, Control and Communications systems, and rolling stock – applying to passenger, freight and OTM/OTP.
Delivering Design Assurance
We bring our domain knowledge and expertise to define the optimal approach. This balances each project’s individual characteristics with the knowledge of what precisely will be required to gain the approvals needed. We collaborate with your engineering and project management team, specialist experts, external approval and regulatory bodies and project stakeholders at both a technical and contractual level.
We ensure software is free of vulnerabilities and fits its intended use. Our service spans the entire software life-cycle, so it is essential that the process is in place from the start of development right the way through to the end of the software life-cycle.
We offer valuable support to everyone involved in developing software for a system or sub-system, whether safety related or not. The approach taken will depend on the safety criticality of the safety function and its application – from SIL0 to SIL4.
Our software team is experienced and trained in performing all software assurance activities, optimising the processes by selecting the most appropriate techniques and methods step by step.
