Integration of Management Systems in Railway Transport
Languages of publication
The mandatory management systems implemented since 2008 in rail transport resulting from legal requirements [1-8], very often (especially in the first years of implementing the requirements) functioned independently of the optional procedural approach - ISO standard [9-10]. Currently, the integration of requirements in both the mandatory and voluntary areas has become common practice. Legal requirements and recommendations do not define or suggest any specific form of extending the existing management systems. Regulation EC 402/2013 in Article 3 point 7  defines only the obligation of interaction between systems (interfaces mean all interaction points during the system or subsystem life cycle). The publication describes the relationship between the requirements in the field of management systems currently used in the railway system resulting from legal requirements (Safety Management System - SMS) and voluntary implementations (Quality Management and Environmental Management System).
