Designated Body in Switzerland

The Swiss railway directive requires an assessment of safety and conformity by an independent assessment for the approval procedure. Designated Bodies are one of these independent bodies checking the compliance of subsystems with the basic requirements as far as these are specified by notified national regulations.

As of May 17, 2018 Arsenal Race has been recognized as designated body for the following assessment areas by the Swiss Federal Office of Transport FOT:

  • Infrastructure (INF)
  • Energy (ENE)
  • Safety in railway tunnels (SRT)
