Eurailtest is an Economic Interest Group (EIG) specialized in railway testing and engineering created by SNCF and RATP in 1999.[1]

Eurailtest markets and promote SNCF Mobilités, SNCF Réseau and RATP laboratories’ testing services to the companies operating in the railway field in France and internationally.[2]

The Eurailtest team is composed of business engineers who manage the sales and the projects follow-up. A marketing and communication team is responsible for development and promoting the EIG's and its partner laboratories’ business activity (selling of railway testing and consulting).

Eurailtest's offices are located in Paris, 1 boulevard Saint-Martin, Place de la République.


The company was created in 1999 to gather the Railway Testing Agency (AEF) and the Test and Measurement Laboratory (LEM) skills and expertise in order to offer a wider range of tests. In 2018, SNCF Réseau joined the Eurailtest E.I.G. with its Test and Measurement Department (DGII ME). The department offers new services to Eurailtest clients such as digital simulation and OCL uplift measurement.[3]


Eurailtest partner laboratories operate during rolling stock, infrastructure and railway equipment homologation and qualification.[4][5][6]

They also coordinate safety, performance and comfort tests as well as material availability and railway installations. These measures involve the mechanical, electrical, physico-chemical, acoustical and Health, Safety & Environment fields.

Eurailtest, via numerous SNCF Mobilités, SNCF Réseau and RATP entities, provides many offers which the clients can choose to adjust according to their projects. The 3 main Eurailtest partner laboratories are : The Railway Testing Agency (SNCF Mobilités) created in 1933, located at Vitry-sur-Sein, the Test and Measurements Laboratory (RATP) created in 1914, located at Boissy-Saint-Léger and the Test and Measurements Department created in 1966, located at Saint-Ouen.[7]
