UIC Asia-Pacific Workshop on Standardisation

14 October 2021

The UIC Asia-Pacific Workshop on Standardisation will be organised online on 14 October 2021 (8:00-12:00 am Paris time).

The UIC Standardisation Platform continuously extends its activities and dissemination of International Railway Solutions (IRS) as the standardisation documents to be voluntary applied for international and regional interoperability.

With the purpose to share knowledge about structure, procedures and processes of IRS development and its scope of application and to introduce the Asia-Pacific members national standardisation systems, we expect fruitful exchanges between representatives of international and regional standardisation organisations, regulators, railway industry and operators during the workshop.
