Network Certification Body (NCB), which provides a system-wide approach to railway assurance and certification on infrastructure, vehicle and freight projects, has announced the appointment of Neil Hannah as chairman, succeeding Tim Dugher.

Looking forward to his new role, Neil said: “May I start by expressing my thanks to Tim Dugher, who has led the board of NCB since its very early days, for the way he has helped it establish itself as a trusted partner in the rail certification sector.

“I join the board at a difficult moment, given the Covid-19 pandemic and all its implications for business and individuals. I am confident however that the NCB will continue to provide the excellent certification service that the industry needs and I look forward to working with colleagues across the whole of the rail industry as we seek to take it forward.”
