HAPAS (the Highway Authorities Product Approval) Scheme was set up by Highways England, the County Surveyors Society (CCS) and the British Board of Agrément (BBA) in 1998, with the clear objective of developing national approval assessment, testing and certification for innovative products, materials and systems for use in highways and related areas.
The scheme which removes the need for individual authorities to carry out their own assessments and tests provides highways engineers with invaluable data on product performance, design and installation for project planning.
Our technical experts sit on numerous technical committees and work with Highways England to create new standards and refine old standards for the industry.
We offer HAPAS Certification in product sectors that include high friction surfacing systems, thin surfacing, crack and patch repair systems, and manhole reinstatement systems.Find below copies of our HAPAS Assessment Guideline documents for more information
