After the last IRIS information event 2011 in Bern, SWISSRAIL decided again to organize an IRIS-event due to the great awareness for the ISO/TS 22163 by the Swiss railway industry in Zurich.
Besides Bernard Kaufmann (UNIFE) and Dietmar Gessner (Head of Fleet Procurement at the SBB) and other speakers, Andreas Heinzmann (CC-Rail) also appeared on stage as a keynote speaker. There was a whole range of useful information, amongst other thinks it was also about the fact that, as DB AG has already announced, now SBB will also require IRIS certification from its suppliers. There were very good discussions about this and other topics.
Here you can read the presentation of CC-Rail on the question “correctly implemented, can the ISO/TS 22163 requirements improve the financial performance of your company?” (link, unfortunately the ppt is in German language only).
