Standards and Specifications Advisory Group (SASAG)

Standards are key to the industry and CIHT members are represented on key committees working on updating standards.  More information below

Road and airfield construction and maintenance materials and the way standards are developed and implemented is vital to the performance of UK’s transport networks. The range of issues and variety of standards is complex and the effective distribution of information to the CIHT membership and wider Industry is seen as of great importance.

The Standards and Specifications Advisory Group (SASAG) has been established to assist the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation to co-ordinate and promote the activities of CIHT in relation to advice for materials and pavement design for highways, airfields and industrial purposes.

Members of the group sit on a number of British Standards Institution (BSI) Committees developing standards for the industry.  

Standards committees

The SASAG is reviewing how it can raise the visibility of documents In Progress, including at Public Comment stage. Links to the BSI website where full lists of In Progress, Published and Withdrawn documents for which each committee has responsibility can be viewed and downloaded.  CIHT members may wish to put forward comments through the CIHT and its representatives or simply as a member of the public.

We are also seeking to establish a group of CIHT members who are interested in receiving alerts and/or assisting the Institution in our relationship with BSI and developing standards. If you would like to be involved please contact e:
