CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT ACTIVITY PERFORMED AS AN ASSESSMENT BODY (ASBO)

The main purpose of the independent evaluation related to the risk management process is to inspire confidence in all stakeholders that the control process will provide the most appropriate recommendation to participants for safe operation within the railway sector.

Stakeholders expect and require the assessment body to meet the requirements of MSZ EN ISO / IEC 17020: 2012.

MSZ EN ISO / IEC 17020: 2012 prescribes requirements, the observance of which is aimed at ensuring that the assessment body operates in a consistent and impartial manner.

The independent assessment organization of RailCert Hungary Kft. carries out an independent assessment in the different competence areas of the railway system or its parts, to which the basic safety requirements apply, within the framework of the risk management procedure for changes affecting the railway system. This includes areas of competence related to the operation, maintenance and integration of the railway system into the existing system. In practice, this applies to the various structural and functional subsystems of the EU rail system:

  • Infrastructure (INF)
  • Energy (ENE)
  • Control-Command and Signalling (CCS)
  • Traffic Operation and Management (OPE)
  • Maintenance (MAI)
  • Secure System Integration (SSI)

The independent assessment body of RailCert Hungary Kft. carries out its activities on the basis of the requirements of the MSZ EN ISO/IEC 17020:2012 standard and the Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 402/2013 of 30 April 2013 on the safety method for risk analysis and assessment.

Legislation relevant to the functional area of an Assessment Body:
