ARTSM issues position statement on standard

The Association of Road Traffic Safety and Management have issued a statement regarding BS 8442:2022.

Read it in full here:

Following concerns received by our members in respect of BS 8442:2022 at the start of May, ARTSM requested for an urgent meeting of B509/3 at BSI to address the identified errors. The BSI B509/3 committee agreed that the errors should be corrected and the corrections appear below.

Amendment requires a business case to BSI and this has now been drafted. However, we are unable to identify a time scale for this to take place. ARTSM is however pushing for this to be expedited as soon as practicably possible.
