International Railway Industry Standard

IRIS is the international rail industry standard driven by UNIFE (European Rail Industry Association) and is widely recognized by stakeholders and relevant parties in the rail sector, such as system manufacturers and rail operators.

It is based on the internationally recognized standard ISO/ TS 22163: 2017 which includes specific application requirements for rail organizations, as well as the ISO 9001 quality standard.

The purpose of IRIS is to improve the quality and the reliability of rolling stock, signage and infrastructure, thus improving the entire supply chain.

It can be applied to construction part manufacturers of individual systems and components, and to operators and vehicle manufacturers which move around on railways.

The main benefits of the implementation and subsequent certification in accordance with this benchmark include:

Improving the ability of consistently providing products and services that satisfy both customer requirements as well as statutory requirements and applicable regulations;

Global recognition;

Independent verification of compliance with the standard, carried out by specialists;

Decreased need for secondary audits (simplification of the assessment process and qualification of suppliers);

Increased confidence in the product’s design, planning and production processes.
