Type of Standards


This African Standard specifies the methods to be used in, and the extent of, the examination of motor vehicles that are subjected to a roadside assessment for roadworthiness by law enforcement officers. 1.2 This standard may also be applied by a driver or an operator at the roadside.
1.3 This standard is intended to be applied to heavy vehicles or combinations of heavy vehicles of Mass exceeding 3 500 kg, at a roadside inspection or whilst the vehicle or combination of vehicles is standing idle at a weigh station, customs post or similar and shall be used as a walk-around visual check.
NOTE: No testing equipment nor special premises are required, although the availability of flat road or of an inspection pit will enhance the extent of the visual inspection that is possible.

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.
