International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS)
The global growth potential of rail traffic and the distribution of the market among its participants is determined by three factors: Innovation. Safety. Quality. Whether you are a railway operator, manufacturer of railway vehicles or supplier of the railway industry, you'll find the international IRIS standard to be a valuable support in decisive subject areas: qualification of your company for project and series management for railway vehicle manufacturing, effectiveness and efficiency of your company processes, and continuous development of product and service characteristics. DQS is your partner for the implementation of this standard. In April 2006 – one month after the publication of the standard – we issued the first-ever IRIS certificate worldwide. Since then, we have actively participated in the working group of UNIFE (Association of the European Rail Industry) on the further development of IRIS. Today, we are one of the leading railway certification bodies.
