Safety & Assurance Testing

Every company is different, and that is why the assurance services we provide are tailored to a company's specific setup and project.
  • We will meet with you to assess how we can best assure the project you require
  • We ensure we have an informed base of knowledge, this means absorbing the requirements, applicable industry, and British and European standards that apply to the system/s being procured or built in-house.
  • We will provide the engineering expertise to allow the project management team to make informed decisions when required.
  • We will present our recommendations to the management team to make decisions on the best way forward.


Our understanding of the overground and underground rail networks is extensive. We have experience in working in various functions and projects and understand the Network Rail 'Guide to Railway Investment Projects' or GRIP. We have detailed knowledge of how the various organisations work and interact and, with our methods, we have been able to bring projects in on time and within budget.

Rail Cyber Security

With the increasing use of digital technology within the rail industry to reduce costs and deliver a better passenger experience, keeping your rolling stock and its infrastructure safe from cybercrime has never been so important.

Cyberattacks can be financially and operationally devastating for rail organisations, so you must have the protection in place and be ready to react should your company be targeted.

With modern trains using operating systems to run, and the increased digitalisation designed to enhance the customer experience and monitor a train's performance remotely, cyber security is now a high priority for most rail companies.

What we can offer 

  • With our cyber security expertise, we can provide you with that secure platform.
  • Operational Technology (OT) requires understanding the systems, environment and cyber security risks.
  • Our experienced team works with our clients and manufacturers to break down the process of evaluating the risks and implementing robust mitigation to comply with ISA/IEC 62443 - an international series of standards that address cybersecurity for operational technology in automation and control systems.
  • We have developed a simplified process for steering our customers through compliance with IEC 62443. We evaluate the design, review the modifications and then test and validate the mitigations to minimise the threats and risk of a cyber attack.

It is vital rail organisations remain alert to enable them to tackle cyberattacks. Working with Encompass Engineering, we can give you the best platform to keep your fleet secure and safeguard your reputation.
