Railways need "ready to run" transportation systems that meet the stringent requirements for everyday use and reliability. Every organization in the entire supply chain commits their business management system to fulfill the system, process and product requirements. Consequently companies expect to eliminate the causes of avoidable costs while improving quality. Evaluation and approval of equipment manufacturers will become more efficient. Common business management system (BMS) standards simplify both preparation and execution of the individual evaluation process leaving more time for value-adding work. Costs for manufacturers and suppliers will decrease. IRIS is an international recognized standard that includes the actual evaluation process as well as an audit and scoring methodology. It complements ISO 9001 for the unique requirements of the rail industry.

First buy your copy of IRIS here.

This course is designed for professionals who have prior experience with ISO 9001 and are upgrading their quality management systems to conform to IRIS or are preparing to audit a system for IRIS conformity.

You will be taken through the additional management system and technical requirements clause by clause.  The course includes handouts to assist in upgrading your QMS to a BMS.

Please allow 2-4 hours for this class.
