Network Rail has announced that the team that manages their infrastructure records, including the corporate archive, has been awarded a BSI Kitemark to prove their achievements.

The BSI Kitemark stands for quality, safety, performance and trust.

It demonstrates that a product or service is tested on a regular basis and will perform to a consistent quality every time.

Based at its specialist facility in York, the National Records Group is the custodian of records that help to run the railway.

To be assessed for the BSI Kitemark, companies must hold ISO 9001, the international standard for a quality management system.

What did the officials say?

Trevor Dawton, head of corporate records management, Network Rail, said:

“It is important to us that our customers receive a fantastic service and we are always monitoring and measuring our performance. Achieving the BSI Kitemark for Customer Service confirms that we meet the international standard and that we will be assessed on a regular basis, which gives our customers confidence in our services. It has a focus on continuous improvement, which is important to keep customers and grow our records management business.”

Anne Scorey, UK managing director at BSI, said:

“Network Rail should be delighted to achieve this Kitemark, which is testament to the customer service strategy they have in place for the organisation’s records hub.

“The BSI Kitemark is a highly recognised mark of quality that consumers know they can trust when it comes to the products and services they choose to invest in.

“Many companies are already delivering exceptional service, however by having their organisation independently assessed on a regular basis as part of the BSI Kitemark process, they can prove their commitment to high levels of customer experience.”
