About CORE Certification:

The CORE certification process typically involves rigorous testing and evaluation of the transformers to ensure they comply with the technical and safety standards specified by CORE. This includes tests related to electrical performance, mechanical durability, thermal characteristics, environmental conditions. Detailed manufacturing process review and personnel review is carried out. Sub-assembles and components manufactured in-house and outsourced are subject to stringent evaluation. Calibration of testing equipment, quality inspections, service warranties are also verified as part the certification process.

Once a transformer successfully meets all the requirements and passes the necessary tests, it receives CORE approval, indicating that it is suitable for use in Indian Railways projects. This approval is often a prerequisite for suppliers and manufacturers looking to supply transformers to the Indian Railways or any organization working on railway projects in India.

It is important for manufacturers and suppliers to obtain CORE approval to demonstrate the quality, reliability, and compliance of their transformers with the standards specified by the Indian Railways, ensuring safe and efficient operation within the railway infrastructure.
