A strategic cooperation framework agreement has been signed between TÜV NORD China and Maanshan Iron & Steel (Masteel). Masteel places a great deal of trust in TÜV NORD, especially as a certification institution according to ISO/TS 16949 and IRIS, the International Railway Industry Standard. TÜV NORD also offers technical services to Masteel for the qualification of high-speed trains.

The agreement was signed by Dirk Stenkamp, member of the Board of Management of TÜV NORD GROUP, and Gao Haichao, Vice General Manager of Masteel and its chief engineer. Also present at the ceremony from TÜV NORD were Ren Jun, CEO of TÜV NORD China, Song Haining, System Certification Director of TÜV NORD China, and Eileen Yuan, Industry & Railway Service Department Business Unit Manager of TÜV NORD China.

TÜV NORD also used the occasion to ceremonially hand over an IRIS certificate to the Masteel representatives. IRIS stands for the International Railway Industry Standard, which combines requirements from the ISO 9001 standard with demands specific to the railway industry, similar to those of the ISO/TS 16949 standard in the automotive sector.

The Chinese state-owned Masteel, with its HQ in Maanshan in the Anhui province of Eastern China and more than 20,000 staff, is one of the biggest steel producers in the country. Among other activities the company produces sectional steel for export to 50 countries. The steel produced is used, for example, in the construction of wheel sets for railway vehicles. In this way TÜV NORD is making a significant contribution to the use of Masteel products in high-speed trains.
