Rail

STS is the first testing agency in Singapore to be engaged by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) to assist with rail maintenance auditing. We have worked with organisations such as Deutsche Bahn or LTA and offer considerable experience in rail engineering auditing.

Rail Engineering Audits include
  • Monitoring and measurement of the quality and maturity of procedures
  • Monitoring and measurement of the quality and maturity of customer related products and services
  • Identifying lead indicators of systematic risks and hazards
  • Independent analysis of compliance with regulations
  • Independent analysis of work performance
  • Independent analysis of database for audit preparation
  • Independent analysis of benchmarking

We are a leading NADCAP-accredited NDT and inspection body for Rail Industry NDT applications.

Magnetic Particle Testing
