The Road Safety Manufacturers Association (RSMA) is a non-profit, non-political service organization who’s goal is to actively encourage the implementation of road safety initiatives of the Ministry of Transport (MOT), the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA), the Police and other road safety organisation’s and to provide the appropriate professional support.
Members of the RSMA represent a wide industry group covering component manufacturers and suppliers, sign manufacturers, contractors and professional services consultants all of whom are required to maintain Certified Compliance to NZS ISO 9001:2008.
Until January 2020, in partnership with NZTA the RSMA developed, published and maintained the “RSMA Compliance Standard for Traffic Signs“. The standard set the minimum specification for use by NZTA and other roading authorities in contracts/tenders/specifications for NZTA funded sign and support systems.
Effective February 2020 the RSMA Compliance Standard for Traffic Signs was superseded, expanded and incorporated in NZTA P24:2020 Specification for Permanent Traffic Signs, published on the NZTA website.
The RSMA, with the support of NZTA, is developing and publishing an “Approved Products” industry resource detailing (RSMA member) products that have been either been, formally approved by NZTA and/or been formally tested and meet the requirements to relevant specifications for use on the New Zealand roading network.
This website has been developed to provide an accessible, one stop source of industry related standards and information.
