Procuring SCANNER surveys

SCANNER surveys are commissioned by local authorities. The minimum requirements for surveying are those needed to cover the authorities’ reporting requirements for Best Value Performance Indicators in England; Statutory Performance Indicators in Scotland; and National Strategic Indicators in Wales, but highway authorities are encouraged to consider whether further surveys would be useful for the management of their road networks

There are currently two companies operating SCANNER-accredited machines: WDM Ltd, and Yotta.

Advice to local authorities on procuring surveys is detailed in the SCANNER specification Volume 2:   SCANNER surveys for Local Roads User Guide and Specification Volume 2 Advice to Local Authorities: Procuring SCANNER surveys 2011
