PKP Energetyka S.A. implemented a Rolling Stock Maintenance Management System (MMS)

PKP Energetyka S.A. has conducted the first audits in external companies providing rolling stock repair services. Consequently, the first three certificates were issued based on the Rolling Stock Maintenance Management System (MMS) recently implemented by the company.

Implementation of MMS in PKP Energetyka S.A. is the response to legal requirements of the European Union, pursuant to which all railway vehicles registered with National Vehicle Registry (NVR), need to have the Entity in Charge of Maintenance (ECM) assigned to them, and in addition, in the case of wagons, such an entity has to be certified by the Railway Transport Authority (UTK).
The Rolling Stock Maintenance Management System has been developed by the Technical Equipment Office at Services Division in PKP Energetyka S.A. with the collaboration of representatives from the Rail Transport Faculty of the Technical University of Silesia, with the assistance of members of the Integrated Management System Team.
Safety is among the key company values. Particularly restrictive procedures are applied when carrying out field work, which is particularly dangerous,” said Tadeusz Skobel, President of the Management Board of PKP Energetyka S.A.

In addition, this January the Technical Equipment Department at PKP Energetyka S.A. applied to the Railway Transport Authority for a certificate granting the company PKP Energetyka S.A. the status of an entity in charge of the maintenance of rolling stock. Such a certificate, valid within the European Union, should be issued by the President of UTK by the end of May.

Audit as planned
In February, auditors of PKP Energetyka S.A. visited three companies providing rolling stock repair services for the company. The purpose of the external audits was to provide monitoring of contractors so that their safety-related products and services meet the requirements of the laws and regulations. The auditors analysed the required documentation, inspected production halls with individual workplaces fitted with specialised machinery and equipment, interviewed the management and employees, and then prepared their Audit Reports. Based on these Audit Reports, certificates were issued authorising the entities to carry out maintenance and repairs of the company’s rolling stock to the extent defined by the relevant maintenance specifications and levels.
