Group to present new rail vehicle cleaning standard derived from practical experience
Of interest no doubt to anyone involved in keeping our rail networks clean, the Working Group for Rail Vehicle Cleaning - Rail-Media Institute: VR 115 BMI, will be presenting at the upcoming CMS Berlin, a working standard that has been derived from practical experience.
The VR 115 BMI quality management standard has been developed through collaboration between science and working practice. Following an intensive development process the standard was launched in July and is being presented for the first time in Germany at CMS Berlin 2015, Hall 3.2 / Stand 102.
The private railway company Laenderbahn is the first rail operator to obtain certification from the Bahn-Media Institut (Rail-Media Institute) in accordance with the BMI standard VR 115 (ill.). The main purpose of this standard is to stipulate the quality of services in the vehicle cleaning sector, i.e. to improve quality standards and ensure that they are maintained.
The standard also applies, among other things, to staff qualification, an area where the Bahn-Media Institut draws on the practical experience of the members of its Working Group for Rail Vehicle Cleaning (ASfr). This exchange of views and the annual workshop provide a forum for making continuous improvements and for checking that the working standard meets practical requirements. The 2015 Workshop will take place on 21st September in the run-up to CMS and the venue will be the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.
