What is TIPES and why is it important?

by Australian Road Research Board on August 2, 2022

The Transport Infrastructure Product Evaluation Scheme (TIPES) was established in 2015 with the backing of the state and road agencies of Australia and various other high-profile public and private sector organisations.

Over the past seven years, this national scheme has been administered and further developed by ARRB.

The scheme retains its original support and objective of providing a robust framework allowing the developers and suppliers of innovative products to have the claims and benefits relating to that product rigorously assessed. The assessment process involves a carefully assembled “Product Evaluation Panel (PEP), comprising of industry recognised experts and researchers and road agency representatives where appropriate following a Risk Based triage assessment.

The TIPES scheme doesn’t just confine itself to one area of road infrastructure. It operates across a wide range of components including pavements/pavement materials (including recycled), geotechnical related products, pipe systems, ITS and across the traffic engineering and management sphere, with successful products receiving certification and an entry on the TIPES Register.

This in turn provides suppliers access to potential procurers and sponsors and in many cases further steps towards inclusion within local Approved Lists.
