RAMS-Management and Safety Verification

Specification, verification of reliability, availability, maintainability and safety of rail-based products, applications and projects

HANNING & KAHL advises and supports you with the development and introduction of new products, and also with the planning and realisation of new equipment and new projects. We offer bespoke advice and implementation on the basis of VDV regulations, BOStrab (German ordinance on the construction and operation of trams), building site regulations and on the basis of the CENELEC standards EN 50126, EN 50128 and EN 50129. Phases 1 to 4 of the CENELEC process are indispensable modules essential for successful product design and project implementation which are the responsibility of the operator and the contractor.

We would be pleased to offer you our services in conceptual design, definition of application conditions, risk analysis and the compilation of system requirements. These demanding tasks can be elaborated in parts or as a whole by our team in direct cooperation with you as operator and together with your independent assessor.
