As one of the key infrastructures that help ensure that road viability and safety, toll systems are an important system that can be taken for granted. With the new standard ISO 19299 – ‘Electronic Fee Collection – Security Framework’, the ISO hopes to make it easier for field personnel and organisations to carry out their transport systems inspection.
Transport systems inspection is not just about toll roads, it can be found in numerous of places that support local, state and even international logistics structures. From runway signs to the emergency systems on ferries, our society is filled with methodical procedures, symbols and technology that helps keep us safe. Not only does it keep us safe, but they help to contribute to efficient processes that are reliable. The question for organisations that are in charge of such assets and operations is how to keep them both up-to-date and dependable. This is where standards such as ISO 19299 and transport systems inspection comes in. With effective transport systems inspection, organisations and businesses operating in diverse fields and sectors can ensure that they are providing the best system, asset or management possible. Today paperless inspections, run on mobile applications, on a mobile device, are arguably the industry leading solution. By using technology to help inspect, audit and check various methods, signs or technology systems; inspectors can adeptly monitor performance.
