Akiem has been certified Entity in Charge of Maintenance (ECM) by CERTIFER on the basis of European regulation EU/445/2011 for the maintenance management function of its locomotives. Akiem has thereby become the first European company to be certified for its locomotives.
This achievement is the result of a series of actions taken by Akiem over several months to make sure all of its maintenance management processes meet specific standards of quality and safety. The ECM certification is part of the company’s continuous improvement process, which has already met the requirements of standard ISO 9001 v2008 since 2012.
In addition to asset financing, Akiem has developed a maintenance offer that ensures the availability and reliability of the fleet. The aim of obtaining ECM certification, along with the implementation of a new organization, an efficient maintenance management system and a network of qualified subcontractors, is to guarantee a high level of performance both in terms of the reliability of the fleet and operational safety to clients and safety authorities
