Road Safety Auditors

Revizori cestovne sigurnosti

In its White Paper of 2001 entitled the ’European transport policy for 2010: Time to decide’, the European Commission expressed the need to carry out safety impact assessments and road safety audits, in order to halve the number of fatalities on the roads within the European Union in the period between 2001 and 2010. At the proposal of the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council adopted on November 19th, 2008 the Directive 2008/96/EC on road infrastructure safety management. The purpose of the Directive is to ensure an appropriate level of traffic safety throughout the lifecycle of the road, starting with the planning, design, construction and maintenance of the road which is already in service. The Directive applies to roads that are part of the Trans-European road network, excluding tunnels which are covered by the Directive of the European Parliament and the Council No. 2004/54/ EC on minimum safety requirements for tunnels within the Trans-European road network. The Directive defines “road safety audit” as an independent, detailed, systemic and technical road safety check relating to the design characteristics of a road infrastructure project and covering all stages from planning to early operation. Furthermore, the Directive defines the concept of road safety auditors and the Member States’ obligation to appoint auditors for the purpose of conducting safety audits of road infrastructure.
