Etihad Rail awarded prestigious certification
Etihad Rail, the developer and operator of the UAE’s national railway network, has been certified as ISO 9001:2008 compliant in the field of quality management by Bureau Veritas, a global leader in testing, inspection and certification, and the United Kingdom Accreditation Service.
The certification recognizes and verifies that Etihad Rail’s policies, systems and operations are consistent in quality with the best standards in the world. In order to meet ISO 9001:2008 requirements, Etihad Rail recently developed and implemented a comprehensive quality management system. The AED 40 billion (EUR 8 billion), 1,200 km Etihad Rail network will connect industrial areas, urban and peripheral communities throughout the country, and will be a part of the planned GCC railway network – linking the UAE to Saudi Arabia via Ghweifat in the west and Oman via Al Ain in the east.
