Operationalising Austroads' product acceptance process

This report provides a detailed governance framework to support operationalising the national ITS product approval process. Within the framework, a national ITS type approval committee (NITAC) would be established to review product testing results, and approve products. A single nationwide type approval certificate with acceptance conditions will be issued for successful ITS products. The process will be administrated from a central office with the product assessment outsourced to prequalified third parties. The approval process workflow and results would be managed and maintained through a web register, which would also provide centralised access management and an information sharing mechanism for both road agencies and industry stakeholders. The report recommends that the proposed governance framework be endorsed by all Australian state road agencies and that Austroads provides further funding to conduct industry consultations, set up initial working groups, develop a standard KPI template and develop a pilot web register.
