Standards Committee

Standards Committee

The Standards Committee is the Arizona Department of Transportation’s (ADOT) approval body for all ADOT standards (specifications, drawings and all ADOT documents specifically referenced within the specifications and drawings). The Committee also considers relevant matters presented to it by interested groups or individuals and formulates appropriate action within its scope of responsibility.  Additionally, this Committee will set priorities as it pertains to which new standards or which updates to standards will be worked on. This Committee will set timeframes for the responsible subcommittee to complete the new or revised standard.

To create a new or revise an existing ADOT standard, please download and complete the Standards Committee Request Form and submit it to the Standards Committee Coordinator as instructed on the form.
