Universal Wolf achieves rail welding qualifications

28 September 2020

Universal Wolf has been awarded EN 15085 2 (Certification for Welding of Railway Vehicles and Components, CWRVC) and ISO 3834 part 2 certification.  EN-15085-2 is a requirement for those companies who wish to complete welding and fabrication work for the rail industry. The CWRVC scheme demonstrates a manufacturer’s competence for control of welding quality in production of railway vehicles and components.

Working closely with our external Responsible Welding Coordinator, we took various steps to ensure our documentation and procedures were in line with the requirements of the standard. This included certifying our welders to ISO9606-1 and -2, demonstrating full material traceability and compliant storage of materials.

Melanie Stewart, Quality Engineer and Deputy Responsible Welding Coordinator at Universal Wolf, commented:

“Being awarded EN 15085-2 is a brilliant achievement for Universal Wolf; demonstrating not only the hard work and application of our team, but also the technical skill and ability that we can offer to rail clients in a sector that demands rigorous compliance with quality standards.”

Craig Brown, Business Development Director at Universal Wolf, said:

“Achieving EN 15085-2 has been a key goal for us in expanding our presence in the Rail sector. Despite challenges due to the impact of coronavirus, our team remained committed to achieving this standard and we are delighted to have been awarded CWRVC certification.”
