|PCCP – Painting contractor certification program
A division of CSIRO is responsible for the accreditation of linemarking company occupational health & safety, quality assurance and environmental protection systems. Only accredited linemarking companies are able to work on RMS projects / contracts. Retention of accreditation is subject to regular audit.
|RIAA – Roadmarking industry association of Australia
Although the linemarking industry is relatively small, we have a strong industry association which sets behavioural standards, develops training programs and continue to lobby for the recognition of improvement in road safety from quality linemarking applications. All state road authorities support the association.
|RMS – Roads and Maritime services (formerly the RTA)
Set quality standards for all linemarking parameters including line type, materials, testing etc. The general specification for pavement marking is R141 and high performance markings R145.
|BOM – Bureau of meteorology
Weather conditions play an important role in determining whether linemarking applications should proceed or continue. Adverse weather can affect adhesion and wear characteristics of the markings.
