Stadium IGT now RISQS qualified to supply Railway Industries

Stacey Vinther HMI

Following an intense site audit we are pleased to announce that Stadium IGT has achieved qualification to the requirements of RISQS (an independent, third party qualification assessment of a supplier’s capability to supply products and services to the GB transport industry), enabling us to rapidly grow our business in the railway sector.

RISQS is managed by the Achilles Group Ltd which creates and manages a global network of collaborative industry communities, allowing trading partners to share high quality, structured, real-time data enabling buyers across an industry sector to identify and manage risk and suppliers to increase market reach while increasing compliance and minimising costs for the network as a whole.

Achilles RISQS provides a service for the qualification of suppliers for all products and services that are procured by the UK railway industry. RISQS supports Network Rail, LUL/Transport for London, passenger, light rail and freight train operators, rolling stock organisations, main infrastructure contractors and other rail products and services providers in the management of supply chain risk. RISQS is an independent, third party qualification assessment of a supplier’s capability to supply products and services.

Terry Moss, Sales and Marketing Director of Stadium IGT comments; “This was a rigorous audit to participate in and being awarded qualification to RISQS is a great achievement by our technical and commercial teams. It was the first time that all elements of our Quality Management System, Environmental Management System and the Health and Safety Management System were audited together as one complete Management System. The results of the audit showed how all three separate Management Systems interact and how a breakdown in one can lead to non-compliance in another. Every aspect of our company has been examined and we have achieved a 4 out of a possible 5 pass mark, an excellent result for a first audit. We have existing business with customers including Siemens and Commend (for London Underground) and expect our business in the railway sector to grow very quickly.”

Stadium IGT touch screen control panels offer very rugged construction and patented LED backlighting for clear, ergonomic and reliable HMI applications. Products already manufactured by Stadium IGT for railway applications include platform emergency help points for underground train passengers and communications control panels for railway train communication systems.
