Road Traffic Management Ltd Achieve National Highway Sector Scheme & ISO 9001

Road Traffic Management Ltd are experts in traffic management supporting installers of communications infrastructures, such as telegraph poles, while they work in the public sphere.

RTM approached Assent Risk Management in 2021 to help their small team establish a quality management system that was fit for purpose, and that meets the additional requirements on the National Highways Sector Scheme (12D), an industry specific standard required by Highways England for companies to work on the UK road network.

Implementing ISO 9001 with NHSS 12D

Assent’s consultant Simon worked with the Road Traffic Management team, primarily remotely, to develop their existing documentation and processes.

The two requirements integrate together to make a single management system that can be certified as one. This also reduce administrative overhead for RTM’s team.

Certification Success!

We were pleased to see Road Traffic Management successfully achieve certification to both standards with UKAS Accredited Body Alcumus ISOQAR.

The project completed in December 2021, just months after first engaging with Assent.

Client Comment

“We are extremely pleased with the service provided by Assent and will definitely recommend to any business looking to achieve their ISO certification. I am not sure we would have gained the ISO9001 and NHSS12D without their clear guidance and knowledge! The service we received has been very professional. ”

Work with Assent

If you work on the UK Road Network, your company might also be required to comply with one of over 20 National Highway Sector Schemes (NHSS).

Assent Risk Management can help you implement a compliant quality management system for the first time, or support your existing system with internal audits and improvements.
