This report on a compliance assessment framework (CAF) for cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) for Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) covers the key findings from a literature review and stakeholder consultations and describes the main CAF model options for C-ITS.

The C-ITS CAF options cover status quo, self-regulation, quasi-regulation and regulation, whereby the level of regulation and assurance by the government increases with each option.

The report sets out options for the development of a C-ITS CAF for ANZ, including the proposed approach based on hybrid model options and guidance relating to key topics, such as governance architecture and approval processes.

It provides recommendations for the main tasks to be undertaken in the further development and implementation of an ANZ C-ITS CAF.
