What is ISO 39001 ?

About 1.3 million people around the globe die each year as a result of road traffic crashes, and more than 20 million people injured. This is unacceptably high. Road traffic became a global issue.
To improve global road safety, WHO in cooperation with the United Nations set up the UN Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC) started to address global road safety issues in depth. To remove serious road traffic incident, policy establishment and activities of international organizations and developed countries has recently been made.
In the meantime, Sweden, known as strong country for standardization, took initiative to publish “Road Traffic Safety Management System” (hereinafter referred to as RTS Management System).
In 2008, ISO/TC 241 consisting of 28 participating countries and 18 observing countries was made, and finally developed and published international standard for RTS Management System – ISO 39001

UN strongly recommends adoption of RTS Management System

UNRSC set up global project “the Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020)” which is to reduce 5 million people of traffic fatalities over the decade around the globe.
UNRSC set up 5 pillars for the global project, and first pillar of them is Road Safety management, in which ISO 39001 was highly recommended as nationwide activity.
