ECM – Certification of Maintenance Organisations

Maintenance Organisations for Freight Wagons

We audit and certify your maintenance organization in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 445/2011 of 10 May 2011 on a system for the certification of bodies responsible for the maintenance of freight wagons and amending Regulation (EC) No 653/2007.

Preauditing of Maintenance Organisations

At present Regulation (EU) No 445/2011 is applicable only for maintenance organizations for freight wagons. However, with the implementation of the fourth railway package, probably from the end of 2018 on, all maintenance organizations will be subject to the same regulations irrespective of the type of vehicles being supervised. It is therefore advisable to introduce and manage a management system already in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 445/2011, in order to meet the requirements immediately on entry into force of the regulation for all maintenance organizations.

We are offering audits also to maintenance organizations of all other types of rail vehicles to have their organization audited according to the same standards as an ECM certification and thus prepare themselves best for future standards.
