TRaC provides testing and qualification requirements for the rail industry and its supply chain.

We work with rail manufacturers who all benefit from our pre-compliance testing and understanding of statutory requirements. Our Early Stage Qualification (ESQ®) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) services allow us to work with design teams from the concept stage to help steer your project away from compliance and approval pitfalls. ESQ and FEA help you achieve first time success when your rail projects reach the testing, approvals and certification phase.

TRaC is UKAS accredited to BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and we have the largest capacity for EMC and environmental testing in the UK.
