Technically Assured Organisation Scheme

The Technically Assured Organisation (TAO) Scheme recognises technical capability within the transport sector and allows entities to compete to provide self-assured services on Transport assets.

Entities that seek to provide self-assured engineering and asset services to Transport, or within the supply chain, are required to become a TAO. 

Recognition as a TAO is gained through an evidence based assessment and is dependent on participation in the surveillance program. The scheme is governed by a suite of documentation including:
