A Notified body since 2004, BELGORAIL is the market leader in Belgium, specialising in the organisation and implementation of testing activities (rolling stock and ETCS). The head office is in Brussels, with a sub-office in Spain.
“This merger presents exciting new development opportunities, particularly due to the group's diversification of activities regarding testing, the enrichment of the team of experts and the complementary nature of the accreditations and approvals by the various authorities,” agree Jean-marc Dupas and Pierre Kadziola, representatives of BELGORAIL and CERTIFER.
With the integration of the Belgian specialist, the emerging new group is positioned as one of the world’s market leaders in railway certification. Excellent news for both BELGORAIL's and CERTIFER's clients, as well as for the entire railway sector.
