Independent Verification and Validation

Independent Verification and Validation

What is Independent Verification and Validation?

Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) is a third-party assurance service that we provide to confirm that a product, system or entire railway complies with a client’s specified requirements for Safety, RAM, Functionality and Quality.

An IV&V process involves lifecycle audits and assessments which are used to gather evidence to enable eventual certification.

Our approach will be tailored to each project, but may include:

  • A verification and validation plan
  • Design reviews with technical expertise
  • Gate reviews
  • Progress monitoring
  • Design process assessment
  • RAMS-LCC verification
  • Assessment of Change Requests
