ISO 39001 Certification

ISO 39001 Certification provides proof of conformance with the international equirements for a Road Traffic Safety Management System (RTS) based on the ISO 39001 Standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

What is ISO 39001?

ISO 39001 specifies the requirements for a road traffic safety (RTS) management system to enable an organization that interacts with the road traffic system to reduce death and serious injuries related to road traffic crashes which it can influence. The requirements in ISO 39001 include development and implementation of an appropriate RTS policy, development of RTS objectives and action plans, which take into account legal and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about elements and criteria related to RTS that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence.  This standard is applicable to public and private organizations that interact with road traffic systems.

This standard is created to have a considerable impact on the future of traffic safety and increase the awareness of speed, vehicle and driver condition. Concerning the social impacts, ISO 39001 is a journey to make our roads safer place to travel.

The ISO 39001 Standard establishes the international requirements for a Road Traffic Safety Management System (RTS) including the following clauses:

Clause 4 - Context of the Organization (scope)
Clause 5 - Leadership (Executive Level Policy & Directive)
Clause 6 - Planning (Risk Assessment Process)
Clause 7 - Support (Training & Awareness, Control of Documents, etc)
Clause 8 - Operation (Policies, Processes & Procedures)
Clause 9 - Performance Evaluation (Monitor & Measure, Audit Program, Management Review
Clause 10 - Corrective Actions

The requirements of ISO 39001 are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations (or parts of an organization), regardless of type, size and nature of activity, and whether in the public, private or not-for-profit sectors.

ISO 39001 certification also known as "registration", is a 3rd party audit performed by a certification body (registrar) such as MSECB (iCertWorks) who, upon verification that an organization is in conformance with the auditable requirements of ISO 39001, will issue an ISO 39001 Certificate.  This certification is then maintained through regularly scheduled annual surveillance audits by the registrar, with re-certification performed on a three year audit cycle.
