Belvoir Rail Achieves ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Recertification

We are delighted to announce that we have successfully passed the recertification audit for our integrated management system, encompassing ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.

The audit, conducted on-site at our Cotgrave headquarters from January 29 to 31, 2024, by an external auditor from RIQC, concluded with an outstanding outcome – with zero non-conformances or corrective actions identified during the evaluation. 

RIQC, an independent certification body, accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), specialises in certifications for the railway industry. 

ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are globally recognised standards that help businesses establish and maintain effective management systems.

Belvoir Rail has proudly held ISO 9001 accreditation since its inception in 2008 and further demonstrated its commitment to excellence in 2023 by achieving ISO 14001 accreditation, emphasising our dedication to environmental responsibility. The renewed certification for both standards is now extended until 2027.
