Preparation of an approval concept
Preparation of the documents to be presented to the FOT
Integration of FOT’s comments into the approval concept
PROSE managed the homologation process and supported the coordination between SBB Cargo and the Federal Office of Transport (FOT) to achieve the approval for the automatic coupler for commercial operation.
The customer gains an overview of the valid regulations to be considered for the approval process with the FOT. Consequently, the authorities received a fast processing time and later the customer a lean, efficient verification and issue of the operating approval. PROSE has made a valuable, risk-minimising contribution to the “automatic couplers” project which is essential for the success of the strategic automation programme.
