The SCANNER specification has been very substantially revised to incorporate the results of the further research completed in 2006, and the experience of using survey results from 2004/05 and 2005/06. It has been completely recast in five new volumes as a User Guide and Specification, to be used for surveys in 2007/08 and subsequent years.

Volume 1 provides a brief summary of the requirements for SCANNER surveys, and is intended to be read as a free standing document, as well as providing an overview of the other four volumes. SCANNER Surveys for Local Roads Specification Volume 1 Advice to Local Authorities For surveys in 2007
