Enforcement Technology Testing

On behalf of the UK Home Office, Road Safety Support is responsible for testing the reliability and accuracy of new road traffic enforcement technologies in the Type Approval process. Speed accuracy testing is performed within an ISO 17025 accredited process.



This respected position puts us at the heart of enforcement technology development in the UK, and our specialists are among the most skilled and experienced in the world in this field.

The company's facility for calibrating and testing road traffic speed measurement devices has been awarded ISO 17025, the single most important standard for calibration laboratories across the world.

The facility has been approved by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to test the accuracy of speed cameras and other devices, either at its dedicated testing track or on any road across the world. It is one of just a small number of accredited laboratories of its kind worldwide.

As well as proving that the calibration is traceable to international metrology standards, the accreditation tests the independence and integrity of the calibration service.
