Regarding our safety assess­ment our range of expertise, dependent on the current product life-cycle phase, goes from necessary assess­ment of measures for fault preven­tion and fault analysis via assess­ment of existing safety verifi­ca­tion of develo­p­ment and construc­tion documents all the way to inspec­tions and tests. Just like in other areas of operation we do not only act nation­wide but also in other European and non-European countries in which BOStrab is essential for accep­tance.
