Start of implementation of ISO/TS 22163:2017 (IRIS)

As of October 3, 2017, CNT Technical Repair Center started the implementation of the principles and certification of the IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard) system. The system defines specific requirements for the railway industry and is currently being implemented on the basis of the ISO/TS 22163 standard.

ISO/TS 22163 sets out the requirements of a business management system for organizations involved in the design, development, manufacturing, maintenance (fleet maintenance, overhauls and refurbishment of parts and repair) of products for the railway sector.

The IRIS certification scheme may be used throughout the supply chain of products related to rail vehicles, railway traffic control, and infrastructure.
