This Standard superseded HD 34/03 which introduced the Standards Improvement System (SIS). SIS is a computerised database of reports generated from failures of specifications and design standards and other observations on these documents. The database records potential improvements using lists of components, symptoms, diagnoses and detailed descriptions. SIS is operated and maintained by the Highways Agency. Its prime objective is to improve the performance of the engineering standards and specifications published by the Highways Agency, both independently and jointly with other Overseeing Organisations. feedback arrangement To provide feedback on the Highways Agency’s standards and specifications, please use this link: http://www.highways-net.co.uk/information/dmrbaccess.asp
