Testing and measurements

Railway certification laboratory and safety assessment for products and systems

RINA’s experience ranges from the high speed railway system solutions (such as the AGV and Pendolino trains, the Italian high speed lines) to the regional trains. Moreover, We can offer synergies between the assessment and the laboratory activities, leading to a more comprehensive approach to the work and to cost-saving solutions.

As for the signalling laboratory, we have huge experience on the equipment from major European and worldwide ERTMS manufacturers. We can rely on the laboratory with the most automated level of testing procedures; this represents a key-factor not only for certification activities, but also for the product development. 

We can develop signalling equipment test campaigns in its own laboratory located in Genoa, fully equipped for conformity verification of products intended for use in trackside or in train-borne ERTMS/ETCS subsystems.

The activity is carried out in accordance with the RINA governance model, which safeguards impartiality and prevents conflict of interest situations.

Over the years, our personnel have acquired considerable experience in this field, actively contributing to defining the international reference standards and continuously collaborating with the main European bodies for the updating and harmonisation of test specifications.
