Approval bodies are more frequently demanding an idependent examination of the safety-related design of railway systems by a third party. TÜV NORD offers with an Independent Safety Assessment (ISA) a safety orientated and independent testing based on the principle of double checking.The aim is to gain additional certainly that the necessary safety level has been achieved.

As railway related systems becomes more complex,traditional methods of proof become more problematic; here the probability-based approach offers significant advantages. Experts from TUV India and TÜV NORD have many years of experience in Independent Safety Assessment for rail systems and vehicles.
