Start of the year at Railway Approvals


By now, all Railway Approvals colleagues have returned from their Christmas vacations and the certification business is back in full swing. 

We are looking forward to a very special year, since this year we are celebrating our 5th anniversary. The planning for our anniversary event has already started and we can be excited.

The Railway Approvals team wishes you a Merry Christmas


Last week, the Railway Approvals team got together for the last time this year. We also welcomed our new colleague joining us this month and colleagues joining us in January 2023 to our Christmas party.
Together we strolled through the Christmas market in Hanover, sat together and feasted.
We reflected on the year and looked forward to an exciting year of 2023, in which we will continue to expand.

Practical training at Railway Approvals


Despite the icy cold, an intensive training course on the subject of "vehicle markings" was held at our location in Hanover last week. After an initial intensive theoretical part, the participants went to the main station wearing gloves, hats, winter jackets and, of course, the newly arrived RAG warning vests. Here, what had been learned before was compared with examples on real vehicles.

We would like to thank our cooperation partner ERC.RAIL GmbH for this great and very practical training!

Extension of recognition scope as Designated Body


We have successfully extended the scope of recognition for our Designated Body (DeBo) in Germany. In future, our technical experts in the infrastructure subsystem may also assess conformity with the recently notified rules on platform height (S-Bahn) and standard clearance (S-Bahn).

This means that we are able to carry out the assessments according to all notified national technical rules (NNTR) for the infrastructure subsystem in Germany.

We would like to sincerely thank all those who have participated in the extension procedure and are already looking forward to new, exciting projects!
