ON-BOARD ETCS LABORATORY & CERTIFICATION
TRY & CERT I WE OPTIMIZE YOUR PROJECT
TRY & CERT is the fruit of the collaboration between SNCF’s Rolling Stock Engineering Center (CIM) which has independent laboratory for the ETCS testing and Certifer Group (Certifer and Belgorail).
As part of the Automatic Train Protection subsystem installed on the vehicle with the aim of supervising train movements based on signalling system, The on-board ETCS guarantees the safety of traffic in accordance with European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS).
Created in 2018, Try&Cert represents a trusted partner for the testing, assessment and certification of on-board ETCS components and components groups.
The ERTMS France® laboratory, accredited according to ISO 17025 standard with new innovative automatic benches able to process more than 250.000 variables per second, offers the opportunity to rely on the strong French know-how of SNCF’s Rolling Stock Engineering Center (CIM).
By relying on TRY & Cert, you can benefit from optimised practices for testing and certification thanks to integrated process from the early stage of the project.
WHY A ERTMS LABORATORY AND CERTIFICATION SERVICE ?
As the on-board ETCS is a complex constituent and plays a key role in achieving interoperability, the Control Command Signalling Technical Specification for Interoperability (TSI) of the Directive 2008/57/EC on the interoperability of the Rail System within the Community states that:
- Conformity tests has to be carried out by a laboratory accredited according to NF/EN/ISO/CEI 17025 standard
- An independent conformity assessment body is required in order to assess the conformity of the constituent
Try & Cert therefore offers a combined offer to meet these two requirements and avoids interface management between a laboratory and a certification body.
