It is not the intention that the GAM duplicate these resources; rather, relevant content will be referred to and valued added by describing applications to road assets, typically at a greater level of detail. The development of the GAM was aligned with the latest 2015 version of the IIMM, which is also themed on the basis of ISO 55001.
