VERS is seeking to secure, as part of its technical approval of workshops against the backdrop of ECM activities, a conformity evaluation of the highest level for NDT expertise. Given that railway traffic is pan-European and railway wagons are maintained across Europe, this conformity evaluation must also be deployed on a Europe-wide basis. A conformity evaluation is therefore to be applied by a third party entity in line with EN 17065.


VERS has, in conjunction with W.S.cert GmbH (from the technically responsible entity of W.S. Werkstoff Service GmbH), developed a programme under the name “NDT Railway” to certify the NDT process in maintenance workshops.

Further information on the certification program can be found in the FTB download area.
