TÜV SÜD assesses rail systems in Italy

ANSF, Italy's National Railways Safety Agency, has recognised TÜV Italia as Verificatore Indipendente Sicurezza (VIS). Based on this recognition, the inspection and certification organisation can now provide assessment of railway systems according to Italy's Notified National Technical Rules (NNTR-I). TÜV Italia is a 100% subsidiary of the TÜV SÜD Group and supplies all its rail services under the umbrella of the Rail business unit.

TÜV SÜD Rail's suite of services includes approval of rolling stock and rail infrastructure according to the new German Railway Commission Authorisation Regulation (EIGV) and testing as a Notified Body (NoBo) within the scope of conformity assessment and certification according to the European Interoperability Directive 2016/797. Services provided by TÜV SÜD's rail experts cover all areas of rail transport – from rolling stock for conventional trains, metro trains and high-speed trains to infrastructure and signalling systems.
