TÜV Rheinland InterTraffic GmbH recently received approval as an Independent Safety Assessor and its subsidiary “Luxcontrol” has also been accepted as a Notified Body UK. This will facilitate the rail service operation of TÜV Rheinland InterTraffic in Great Britain.
As Dr. Howard Parkinson who will be spearheading the new rail business in the UK explains:
“We already operate as a Notified Body and ISA throughout mainland Europe, Ireland, and globally including India, the Middle East, the Far East and America. Now, we are able to bring our expertise from those international railway assessment projects directly to the UK customers”.
TÜV Rheinland have worked on the ISA of the safety case of HSL-Zuid in the Netherlands, the metro and Cityring Copenhagen as well as the high speed line Munich-Verona.
