Quality, Safety & Environment


DPSS Cabling Services gained accreditation to BS EN ISO 9000:1994 in May 1998 for the following scope:

“Design, survey, installation of cabling and associated route works that include: Electrical systems, network systems for voice/data transmission, copper and optical fibre cabling within the railway, commercial, public and private sectors”.

In January 2002 BSI carried out a Management System Assessment. It was commented that “DPSS demonstrate a well operated and controlled documented quality management system, with a positive attitude toward the transition to ISO 9001:2000. DPSS completed the transition in February 2003.

DPSS is currently not accredited to BS EN ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, however our system is in place and maintained to those initial standards set.


We were also accredited to ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System. Our scope of certification was: “Supply design and installation of cable, cable management, equipment and minor civil engineering activities for the communication and power environment within the rail industry”. Although we are no longer audited we maintain our system internally to those standards.
