Ignore EN 15085 at your peril…… in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

With Alstom, China South Rail (CSR) Zhuzhou and China North Rail (CNR)- all of which having been awarded the lion’s share of the massiveR100 billion upgrade programmes of Transnet and the PassengerRail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) – stipulating that South Africanfabricators must comply with EN 15085 in order to sub-contract tothem, local companies ignore EN 15085 certification at their peril.This is the view of the SAIW’s Sean Blake.
