Context: ISO/TC 269 Working Group 5 developed an updated ISO/TS/DIS/FDIS 22163 to upgrade the requirements to a higher level and achieve global consensus. This means, that ISO/TS 22163:2017 upgraded to ISO 22163:2023 and IRIS Certification® Conformity Assessment: 2020 upgraded to IRIS Certification® Performance Assessment: 2023. In this transition it is utmost important to quickly understand all changes and modifications in order to maintain your IRIS Certificate, including the IRIS Quality Performance Levels such as SILVER or GOLD. This seminar will facilitate and help to better understand all the new requirements and how to manage the change implementation in the most reasonable way.

Be surprised by the new training contents! These are even more focused on business process efficiency as well as their applicability in daily practice and a MUST for all who strive for SILVER or GOLD. The added value of our training courses lies not only in the competent explanation of the topics, contexts and backgrounds, but much more in the time saved after the course. For the first time, we will provide you with all the practical examples shown during the training in editable Office versions after the seminar. We are very sure that the training courses of the IRIS Academy will continue to maintain their global top position, and this despite exploding hotel costs still at average daily prices.

Trainer: Andreas Heinzmann 
as usual in the IRIS Academy, we will share our best knowledge first hand with you! In line with our credo The Best for the Best in the Rail Industry”, Andreas Heinzmann will present this seminar. He is a founder of the IRIS system and was the first president of the IRIS Group. Under his leadership, the certification system has been developed. Hence, he has been and still is a major contributor to all previous revisions. Among other things, he was also a member of the five-member team of experts, which has worked out the draft of the ISO/TS 22163 standard and gave numerous comments concerning the ISO DIS 22163  download comments. He provides  first-hand information that hardly anyone else could deliver. In addition, he motivates participants to deploy the IRIS requirements by explaining the usefulness and interrelations between the IRIS requirements, and by providing a wealth of context information and practical examples of the rail industry. He promotes a modern, user-friendly and lean set of visual business processes in a very clear structure.  He will discuss good solutions that will bring you forward on your way to GOLD. However, due to his independence, he is not afraid to openly address the numerous technical errors published with the new ISO 22163:2023.

Objectives: This course provides new inside, but also refreshes exiting knowledge. Amongs all the new information around the IRIS Scheme update, it addresses also other topics, including important IRIS guidelines.. This semonar builds on the IRIS basics and gives on top numerous time-saving practical tips on how to achieve Silver or Gold efficiently (many exercises and interesting topics for IRIS professionals).

Target group: this course requires IRIS skills and achievements such as either the degree of an Internal IRIS Auditor or an IRIS Manager. Furthermore, all process owners and process experts are invited who take care of the continual improvement of their business management systems. This seminar complements our internal IRIS Auditor or former IRIS Manager training. Therefore, we will not repeat IRIS basics or content of the previous seminar as you should already understand how to implement all fundamental mandatory requirements of ISO 22163 and ISO 9001. 20 hours seminar is not very much time. Therefore, we will mainly focus on updates and those optional processes that were not covered in the 1st seminar, but at the same time we will also go into more challenging topics such as configuration-, requirements- and project management to help you further develop your RQMS.

Content: Specifically, we will elaborate on the following topics:

  • understanding the differences between ISO/TS 22163:2017 and ISO 221263:2023 as well as IRIS Certification® Conformity Assessment: 2020 to the IRIS Certification® Performance Assessment: 2023.
  • discussion of the change impact on all mandatory and optional processes, their interactions with other processes, their meaningfulness and priorities during the transition phase,
  • solutions to implement changing requirements in business processes (Flowcharts),
  • IRIS Guideline 1:2020 KPIs, Guideline 2: 2022 FIRST ARTICLE INSPECTION, Guideline 4: 2022 RAMS / LCC, Guideline 5: 2022 OBSOLESCENCE MANAGEMENT Guideline 6: 2020 SPECIAL PROCESSES, Guideline 8:2022 CONFIGURATION AND CHANGE MANAGEMENT, IRIS Guideline 10: 2021 PROJECT MANAGEMENT, sowie CC-Rail Guideline1:2022: RISK AND OPPORTUNITY MANAGEMENT,

  • many other topics, including exercises and valuable templates for your further direct use (all in all, these are more than 30 useful templates or internationally proven solutions, which you can immediately fit seamlessly into your own system. In addition, there are also numerous links to further specific business topics).
  • mutual exchange and discuss best practices of the railway industry.
  • all topics are didactically prepared in a conference booklet. In the past, our training materials have been awarded top marks by many participants.
