See the Policy and Guidance Document on Remote Assessments for more information on situations in which AASHTO re:source will perform a remote assessment.



Canadian Laboratories
Laboratories that request an on-site or remote assessment to be performed in Canada will incur an additional fee of 15% of the assessment cost.

International Laboratories
International laboratories include any laboratory outside of the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, and Canada. In addition to the fees described above, international laboratories may be subject to additional charges depending upon the location and any extraordinary travel costs. International laboratories interested in an on-site assessment should contact AASHTO re:source staff for specific details and a cost estimate for services. Please also see Policy and Guidance on the Use of the English Language during Assessments.


1. The base fee covers the administrative costs associated with scheduling and traveling to the assessment location (on-site assessments), completing the dry-run (remote assessments) as well as the process to review, send, and post the assessment report.

2. The time-based fee is charged for time performing the audit of the laboratory’s quality management system, opening meeting, technical assessment, test method demonstration, checking of equipment, preparation of preliminary report, and closeout meeting.  Laboratories will not be charged the costs of additional assessors present if we are training or performing a competency check on our personnel.
