RRVC forms an integral part of the Procurement, Continual Improvement and Quality Management Systems of RIMs and 3rd party suppliers.

Our trusted service provision includes certification, inspections, testing, gap analysis, mechanical engineering, import verification and incident analysis. We hold Chartered Professional Engineering associations
in Australia and New Zealand.


RRVC is an independent subsidiary of Australia’s largest Rail Infrastructure Managers (RIMs), providing tailored inspection, testing, compliance and analysis services to 3rd party track maintenance vehicle and associated plant suppliers. The provision of these services in an independent and transparent nature compliments our ability to provide auditing services directly to RIMs and Safety Management Authorities.

The conception of RRVC is the result of an evolving rail maintenance industry with a focus on safety management. Guided by stringent internal and external standards, the procurement process used by RIMs has become increasingly technical and all encompassing. This is especially prevalent with regards to track maintenance vehicles and associated plant and their registration and network operation.

With an intimate knowledge of relevant Engineering and Rail Standards, we are dedicated to assisting parties to achieve desired Rail Network compliance. We are results driven and will support the compliance process from beginning through to final registration. A heavy emphasis is placed on building close professional relationships with all those involved in the certification process.


RRVC’s head office is located in Central Victoria.

We are a mobile service, conducting all inspections on-site.
