The main goal of product certification is to protect the market from unsafe products (health, life and environment hazards) and raise safety of product use. Safety is the main factor particularly in the case of products for transport, especially railways. Certification procedures are a formal instrument to ensure meeting product requirements.


Certification of products

The procedure of product certification is commenced with the submission of filled in application forms at the Quality and Certification Centre, which include:

A detailed description of the product certification process is available in the Guide on certification of product for use in rail transport.

Type attestations and certificates of conformity with type

Pursuant to the Minister’s of Infrastructure Regulation of 30 April 2004 on placing into service certificates of type of construction, equipment intended for rail traffic operation and railway vehicle, the Railway Research Institute performed tests necessary to obtain such certificates and drew up opinions in this scope.

Currently under the Minister’s of Infrastructure and Development Regulation of 13 May 2014 on placing into service of certain railway constructions, equipment and vehicles (Journal of Laws of 2014, item 720), the Railway Research Institute as a body accredited by the Polish Centre for Accreditation (PCA) and pursuant to the President of the Office of Rail Transport (UTK) decision is authorized to carry out technical tests necessary to obtain certificates of placing into service of a type, stating conformity with a type and issuing type attestations and certificates of conformity with type for railway construction (steel sleepers excluding), equipment (third rail excluding), and vehicles mentioned in Chapter 3 of this Regulation.

The process of issuing type attestations and certificates of conformity with type commences with submitting a filled in application form for conducting assessment – issuing a type attestation/a certificate of conformity with type in the Quality and Certification Centre.

A detailed description of the certification process is included in the GUIDE FOR CLIENTS informing about the mode of certification of products for railways – railway construction, equipment and vehicles that require certificates of placing into service.
