After 10 years, IRIS enters a new phase
19 March 2017 • Author(s): Angela de Heymer, Senior Manager, IRIS
Ten years since the IRIS Certification™ was established, it is now a well-known business management system in the rail sector that enables any railway component supplier to meet globally recognised levels of quality for its railway products. IRIS Senior Manager, Angela de Heymer , outlines the latest developments of the standard that has issued more than 1,500 certificates across five continents.
The entire system is comprised of an international standard based on the principles of ISO 9001; a unique assessment tool (assessment sheet) with maturity level and scoring; an evaluation process with an assessment guideline to be performed by IRIS-approved global certification bodies; and finally, a web-based IRIS Portal (database) and Audit-Tool (software).
