Welding of Railway Vehicles according to EN 15085

The standards of the EN 15085 series apply for the construction, manufacturing and testing of welded rail vehicles and their components; DIN 27201-6 applies additionally for rail vehicle welding system maintenance. This series of standards establishes the certification and the quality requirements for welding operations in production and maintenance work.

The Steel for you experts organise the entire implementation process according to EN 15085 and EN ISO 3834 through to certification by an independent and accredited certification body and will accompany you through this from the as-is analysis down to the certification audit.
