IRIS (International Rail Industry Standard) Certification promotes high quality throughout the rail supply industry through the implementation of a global system for the evaluation of companies supplying the rail industry

IRIS (International Railway Industry Standard) complements the internationally recognised ISO 9001 quality standard introducing rail specific requirements and is modelled on similar quality standards already in place in the aerospace and automotive industries. IRIS aims to improve the quality and the reliability of the rail products, to implement and further develop a global system for the evaluation of companies supplying the rail sector, and to instill a culture of quality throughout the sector.

With more than 1000 companies IRIS-certified worldwide, the standard is now an international seal of quality, increasingly recognised by rail operators and manufacturers alike. The IRIS scheme was developed by UNIFE members and the IRIS Management Centre is managed by UNIFE.
