Unipart Rail’s Traction and Rolling Stock (T&RS) division has become one of the first companies in the rail industry to gain the exacting quality management standard ISO9001:2015. The new Standard requires a completely different approach to quality assurance which is based on an understanding of the market, risk and opportunity management and leadership. Unipart Rail, who are based in Doncaster, were able to demonstrate many excellent processes and tangible evidence of these practices in order to gain the certification.
All areas of the business were audited by Lloyds Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) that are involved in the provision of material management, logistics and associated services for traction and rolling stock components and consumables and the design and development of these components. The operation of the business processes and how they interface with each other was a key component in the assessment of Unipart Rail to ensure that the requirements of the Standard translate into actions that add value to the organisation and for stakeholders.
