- European railway industry joins rail vehicle manufacturers to define quality standard (IRIS)for the future
- Certification a plus in international tenders

The quality of vehicles and infrastructure is an issue that has become top priority throughout the European rail transport sector this year. Now, rail vehicle manufacturers have joined to define the International Railway Industry Standard, IRIS for short, and set new standards for the future.

Guaranteeing maximum efficiency and reliability, the certification of management systems according to IRIS will soon be mandatory for all suppliers. Products and system solutions made by Funkwerk already meet these requirements.

'As a technology leader and supplier in this field, we of course want to be a leading light again in this quality offensive. We have already completed the IRIS certification for our quality management system. This enables us to prove right away in new tenders that we deliver the required quality, which is yet another plus in international business,' explained Dr. Hans Grundner, CEO of Funkwerk AG.

IRIS certification benefits Funkwerk customers

The specialist in professional communication systems had begun the certification process back in early 2009 by implementing a set of specific criteria.

As a result of successful certification and award of the IRIS certificate, Funkwerk's products and system solutions are gaining in acceptance among railway companies and infrastructure manufacturers. The IRIS quality standard is now recognised and required worldwide. IRIS certification therefore increases the prospect of future contracts specifically opposite non-certified companies. Along with this competitive factor, Funkwerk has further increased its efficiency by meeting the IRIS quality criteria.

Funkwerk will continuously improve its management systems, which will be attested in further monitoring and certification audits.

'IRIS benefits both us and our customers. Which is why we will continue to pursue this route and commit to consistent and effective quality improvements,' Dr. Hans Grundner affirmed.
