Vilicom is now Accredited to the Achilles Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS)

Pioneers in delivering wireless infrastructure, Vilicom UK Ltd,  are proud to announce that we are now accredited to the Achilles Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS).

Achilles RISQS’s sole focus is to support the UK’s national railway system and the eco-system of customers and potential purchasers within the supply chain. It has become the dedicated portal for suppliers into the rail industry through an assessment of a company’s Quality Management System and Health & Safety Policy that are specific to the many challenges and risks that are faced when working in the railway environment.

Successfully completing the audit and our new accreditation means that Vilicom is now fully approved to carry out wireless infrastructure design, installation and O&M services near and on trackside, nationally throughout the UK. The importance of wireless solutions and distributed antenna systems in the rail and tunnel network is increasingly important, especially as critical communications systems such as the Emergency Services Network migrate to LTE.

Vilicom UK’s Commercial Director, Marc Ibanez confirmed: “Health and Safety is of critical importance in all our activities within this sector, and we have worked incredibly hard to ensure that our business demonstrates the highest levels of compliance to RISQS. Our customers can draw a lot of confidence that these standards have been verified against an industry leading benchmark”.
