The Highway Authorities Product Approval Scheme (HAPAS) was established to support innovation of product and system development in the highways and related areas, sector. Initially set up Highways England (Now National Highways), the County Surveyors Society (CCS) and the British Board of Agrément (BBA) in 1998, the clear objective was to extend and developing national approval assessment, testing and certification for innovative products. Today, the HAPAS scheme has certified and assessed numerous products, materials and systems.
