A consortium composed by IRD Engineering and IIPP have been providing support to Roads of Serbia, the public enterprise responsible for the maintenance, protection, use, development and management of state roads in the Republic of Serbia, in the preparation of a Road Safety Management System and its subsequent certification under ISO 39001. The assignment has been funded by the Central European Initiative Fund, under the supervision of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

Finally, last 6th May 2022 the award ceremony of the Certificate for Road Traffic Safety Management Systems adhering to the requirements of ISO 39001:2012 standard was held, counting on the presence of Ms. Ljerka Ibrović, Manager of Roads of Serbia Department of Public Relations, Mr. Darren Williams, Senior Health and Safety Advisor at EBRD, Mr. Miodrag Poledica, Roads of Serbia Executive Director of the Sector for Strategy, Designing and Development, Mr. Dragan Kostadinov, Regional Manager of IRD Engineering, and Dr. Nada Stanojević, General Director of IIPP.

ISO 39001 “Road Traffic Safety Management” is a standard for management systems for road traffic safety. It requires the development and implementation of an appropriate policy and the definition of objectives and action plans, which take into account legal and other requirements, enabling organisations to influence a reduction in the number of road deaths and serious injuries in collisions.

With that aim, a team of specialists from the partner companies undertook a review of the situation and a gap analysis at Roads of Serbia, developed an action plan and a roadmap for its ISO 39001 certification, assisted in the preparation of a Road Safety Management System, and implemented a training program for relevant staff.

Finally, after months of work, Roads of Serbia is certified under ISO 39001, which will improve the company’s overall safety, reducing the risk of injuries or death caused by road traffic accidents
