Transport Main Roads

At IFCEng, we have in-house TMR Approved Persons to provide advice on technical queries, assessment, testing (if required), and TMR plating and compliance certificates. Under Queensland law, a qualified person who is approved by the Department of Main Roads must approve changes to existing mechanical designs for road travelling vehicles. The main objectives of the TMR Approved Person Scheme are to ensure compliance of design and modifications to applicable regulation/Standards and Australian Design Rules.
