Quality Assurance Committee

Chair: Ed Weedmark, Manager – Quality Audits, Amsted Rail Inc.

The RSI Quality Assurance Committee (QAC) is an advocate for quality and continuous improvement in the performance and safety of the rail supply industry’s products and services. This group is composed of quality leaders from RSI member companies, and includes representatives from car owners, fleet managers, repair and reconditioning facilities, and car and component manufacturers.

The Quality Assurance Committee charter is to proactively identify industry issues, needs, and trends and provide guidance and service offerings to continually improve railway supplier products, processes, and services. This is accomplished by developing and publishing best practice industry compliance standards, documents, and guidelines, conducting training and skills development workshops, and hosting focused symposiums and annual conferences. In addition, the QAC works closely with the Association of American Railroads Quality Assurance Committee to ensure that member companies receive the support and assistance needed to develop quality systems in compliance with the AAR’s Manual Of Standards And Recommended Practices Section J – Specification for Quality Assurance – Specification M-1003.
