ISO 39001:2012 specifies 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 39001:2012 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 International Standard is applicable to any organization, regardless of type, size and product or service provided, that wishes to
a) improve RTS performance,
b) establish, implement, maintain and improve an RTS management system,
c) assure itself of conformity with its stated RTS policy, and
d) demonstrate conformity with this International Standard.
