Through Ricardo Certification, which operates as a separate and independent business within the Ricardo group, we provide rail clients with an extensive range of accredited certification and approvals services.
Our certification teams are globally recognised not only for their trusted expertise but also for a detailed understanding of railways around the world. This reputation has led to their appointments to some of the industry's most challenging and high-profile projects.
In Europe our team is performing the Notified Body role on the central section of London’s Elizabeth Line and providing assurance services for Denmark’s migration of its national network to ERTMS operation and control.
In Asia, Ricardo Certification has supported the introduction of new signalling products to the market, including the first signalling technologies to be developed by domestic suppliers.
Our team also has extensive experience of providing safety assessment services in the Middle East region, with previous projects including Dubai Metro, Etihad Rail, Riyadh Metro and Qatar's programme of integrated urban and national systems. Our remit has typically extended from initial design through to trial operations.
With many of our accreditations classed as multi-site, each service can be performed from offices around the world.
