What is NHSS?
The National Highways Sector Schemes (NHSS) are based on the ISO 9001 framework but interpret it specifically to highways maintenance activities.
Whilst there are currently more than 20 individual schemes, the individual schemes fall under four main categories: road surfacing and marking; fencing, landscaping and vehicle safety restraints; traffic management; lighting, electronics and corrosion protection.
