With our global experience, TÜV Rheinland is today all geared up to address safety assurance issues with respect to modern rail projects in India, using a new tool called Goal Structured Notation (GSN)”.

GSN is a structured graphical tool for defining safety arguments and the relationship between safety arguments to provide a multi-attribute model to support and justify the case for safety.
