Organisation chart and management
Infrabel employs 12,750 staff and is one of the largest public companies in Belgium. A company of this size can only function effectively on the basis of a well-organised structure. Infrabel consists of three directorates and six auxiliary services.
3 directorates and 6 general services
Building a bridge, replacing catenaries or renewing a line? This is the job of the Infrastructure Directorate and its 7,600 employees. The Directorate has a central and a regional structure. In its workshops, it makes and repairs electrical equipment, rail equipment and concrete elements.
Our railway network looks like an inextricable tangle of tracks and trains. Impossible to coordinate everything? Not for our people in the Network Directorate. Day after day, they organise the train traffic and monitor it closely.
Rail Access Directorate
Liberalisation of the railways, free passage for national and international freight traffic; this is where the expertise of the Rail Access Directorate lies. They decide which railway companies can use our network.
Apart from this distinct division of responsibility in Infrabel's core business model, there are six general service departments ensuring the proper flow of operations in various aspects.
1. Human Resources
2. Finances and Legal Affairs
3. Strategy, International Affairs & IT
4. Corporate & Public Affairs
3 separate departments
The Internal Audit Department helps management to achieve its strategic and operational objectives based on an annual action plan. This department evaluates the efficiency of risk management, internal control and corporate governance using a systematic and disciplined approach. The Internal Audit Department is an objective service which assesses the internal control system and makes recommendations where necessary. This department has no operational responsibility. In other words the final decision always resides with management.
The Compliance Officer ensures that our employees do not violate any regulations and that they comply with the applicable codes of conduct. More specifically he/she develops a policy in terms of prevention and the control of internal fraud and also ensures that the confidentiality of the information is respected within Infrabel. This strategy enables us to develop a corporate culture which is founded on ethics and integrity.
