In this regard, in order to carry out inspections in environments that are difficult to access, technologies have been developed for the instrumentation of non-intrusive detection systems, capable of providing reliable support for the collection of evidence for the elaboration of conformity judgments.

From this point of view of inspection, investigation and certification of the result, the "RPAS" project was born, used as a tool for the efficiency of monitoring techniques of the different types of infrastructural degradation found in places that are difficult to access, without compromising the reliability of the evidence that can be used for the evaluation. The goal is to certify compliance by improving processes and methodologies.

The constant surveillance work carried out by the Bodies responsible for issuing the various awards (MIT, ANSF, ACCREDIA and ENAC) provides the company reference market with a primary guarantee on the maintenance of the requisites envisaged and on the professionalism with which the services offered are provided. The continuous updating of the staff, the professionalism and accuracy of the verification reports and field investigations is also highlighted and confirmed by the inspections to which the entire Management and Technical System of ISARail SpA is subjected.
