Austroads is the peak organisation of Australasian road transport and traffic agencies.
The Austroads Safety Barrier Assessment Panel (ASBAP) assesses the crashworthiness and suitability of road safety barriers, systems and devices for deployment on roads managed by Australian and New Zealand road agencies. With ASBAP in place suppliers don’t need to make submissions to separate jurisdictions.
A number of process reforms were planned to improve the transparency of the submission and review cycle and reduce administrative costs to member States.
One of these was the creation of a new automated online submission process.
- Easier application process.
- Customers can access current and previously submitted applications.
- Significant time saved administering submissions.
- Easier access to information by Panel members.
