The Global assurance provider LRQA has officially awarded IRIS certification to Thales España GRP, SAU.

Thales in Spain has just obtained the International Railway Industry Standard (IRIS) certification, an international benchmark created in 2005 by the European Railway Industry Association (Unife) and conceived with the participation of representatives of the sector.

As a result, Thales has received the official certification that guarantees compliance with this demanding standard in our design, manufacturing and maintenance activities.

The successful implementation of IRIS certification is a benefit for all stakeholders in the railway industry, be they equipment manufacturers, system integrators, operators or business partners.

This certification is a milestone for our activity in Spain and is another element of confidence in our products and services.
