On Friday, 21 August 2015, at Deutsche Bahn (DB) AG Headquarters in Berlin, UNIFE, the European Rail Industry Association, represented by UNIFE Chairman Dr Lutz Bertling and UNIFE Director-General Philippe Citroën, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for Cooperation with DB AG, represented by Dr Volker Kefer, Member of the DB Management Board for Infrastructure, Services and Technology on the advancement of IRIS.
The objective of this MoU is to promote mutually beneficial cooperation between the signatories on quality standards in the rail sector. Such cooperation is expected to focus on increasing the exchange of knowledge and experience in a bilateral context on product quality, which is defined as product-related fulfilment of customer requirements. The activities outlined in this MoU endeavour to create a favourable context for the development of the rail sector worldwide and, especially, in Germany.
UNIFE looks forward to continued fruitful cooperation between IRIS and Deutsche Bahn on quality improvements. Mark Manley, Chairman of the IRIS Steering Committee as well as Bernard Kaufmann, IRIS General Manager, expect to sign additional MoUs on IRIS with other major operators in the near future.
