Certification of Products and Quality / Business Management System

Policy and thrusts of activity at LLC MC RailTransHolding in the sphere of quality.

The high quality of its products – and its continuous improvement – are the basic terms for expansion and the conquering of domestic and foreign target markets. The quality policy in place at LLC MC RailTransHolding complies with the Holding’s mission, forms part of its General Policy, and reflects strategic targets, tasks and core activity areas that ensure the achievement of stable success and the image of a reliable, continuously-developing enterprise.

Management assumes the responsibility and obligations entailed in implementing the Quality Policy, ensuring QMS compliance with applicable requirements, increasing the effectiveness of efforts aimed at product-quality assurance throughout their entire life-cycle, preventing deviations from assigned requirements, and ensuring the efficient use of financial and other resources.
Business Management System – IRIS.

The International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS) covers such enterprise activity aspects as project management, competitive bids and modifications, as well as the operational indicators of products, their quality, reliability and safety.
The introduction of IRIS allows railway-engineering enterprises to increase their business efficiency, improve the quality and reliability of their railway products, modify their existing system for inspection-and-acceptance tests and multi-level audits, and increase overall productivity – including cost reduction across the entire supply chain.

The Russian market for railway engineering products is dynamically developing and boasts tremendous investment prospects. To satisfy increasing economic demand for railway transportation services, brand new railway equipment is required. It can be developed based on innovative approaches and recognized business-control methods.

LLC MC RailTransHolding pays great attention to issues of product certification and the introduction of progressive control methods. In March 2012, a decision to carry out training in freight-car certification within Certification System of the Federal Railway Transport (CS FRT) according to the procedures of FBO RC FRT (Federal Budgetary Organization "Register of Certification on the Federal Railway Transport") was made at the meeting of the Board of Directors (Protocol No. 7). To this end, in May 2012, the company’s certification specialists took part in a training seminar carried out by IRIS General Manager Bernard Kaufmann on the issue of the standard’s introduction, culminating in the issuance of the corresponding certificates of completion.

Moreover, this decision was imposed by an order issued by JSC Russian Railways Administration, which has set a strategic mission aimed at the quality improvement of the technical equipment used within the infrastructure of JSC Russian Railways. Within the timeframe established by Company President V.I. Yakunin, the procurement of railway equipment and components at enterprises certified for compliance with IRIS requirements is expected to commence in 2015.
