International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP)
The International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) is a registered charity dedicated to saving lives through safer roads.
Their vision if for a world free of high risk roads.
iRAP works in partnership with government and non-government organisations to:
• inspect high-risk roads and develop Star Ratings and Safer Roads Investment Plans
• provide training, technology and support that will build and sustain national, regional and local capability
• track road safety performance so that funding agencies can assess the benefits of their investments.
Road Assessment Programmes (RAP) are now active in more than 70 countries throughout Europe, Asia Pacific, North, Central and South America and Africa.
iRAP is financially supported by the FIA Foundation for the Automobile and Society and the Road Safety Fund. Projects receive support from the World Bank Global Road Safety Facility, automobile associations, regional development banks and donors.
National governments, automobile clubs and associations, charities, the motor industry and institutions such as the European Commission also support RAPs in the developed world and encourage the transfer of research and technology to iRAP. In addition, many individuals donate their time and expertise to support iRAP.
The Trustees are responsible for the proper administration of iRAP, have a duty to act collectively, and act in the public interest. iRAP remains bound by the laws of the UK, including the Charities Act 1993 (as amended by the Charities Act 2006) and Bribery Act 2010. They take a zero tolerance approach to bribery and this is set out in their Anti-bribery and Corruption Policy adopted by the Board of Trustees in March 2012.
All Trustees must sign a Trustee Declaration and complete a Register of Interests. In addition to the requirements of iRAP’s Memorandum and Articles of Association, iRAP has adopted a Conflicts of Interest Policy and a Code of Conduct for Trustees.See more
