Tests and Fees – Remote Assessments

Assessment Fees for Remote Assessments

The Laboratory Assessment Program charges fees based on the time needed to complete an assessment. The laboratory will be invoiced after the final assessment report is released.

Base Fee ($550)
A base fee of $550 will be charged for every remote assessment regardless of scope or time needed to complete. This fee covers the administrative costs associated with scheduling the assessment, completing the dry-run, as well as the process to review, send, and post the assessment report.

Hourly Fee ($250)
A fee of $250 will be charged for hour of assessing time, or portion thereof, for each fully-trained assessor that takes part in the assessment. The hourly fee of $250 will be charged for the time spent on review of all quality system policies, procedures, and records as well as for the opening meeting, technical assessment of test method demonstration, preparation of a preliminary report, and the closeout meeting. Laboratories will not be charged the costs of a second assessor if we are training or performing a competency check on our personnel.

Cancellation Fees for Remote Assessments
If it is necessary to cancel or postpone your remote assessment, please contact us as soon as possible. Laboratories that cancel or postpone their remote assessment within 15 days of the start date of the assessment will be invoiced for the 20% of the estimated cost of the assessment or $550, whichever is greater. Laboratories that cancel or postpone their assessment within 5 days of the start date of the assessment will be invoiced for the 40% of the estimated cost of the assessment or $1100, whichever is greater.
International Laboratories (Including Canada) and Remote Assessments
International laboratories include any laboratory outside of the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

All quality management system documentation must be provided in English, and an appropriate English translation of pertinent documentation must be provided. All assessments are conducted in English. If necessary, an interpreter must be provided to facilitate the assessment. It is the responsibility of the laboratory to communicate with AASHTO re:source that an interpreter will be required prior to scheduling the assessment. All costs associated with hiring an interpreter or translating quality management system documentation will be the responsibility of the laboratory. If an assessment is scheduled without arrangements for an interpreter, and it becomes clear to AASHTO re:source management that an interpreter is in fact necessary, the assessment will be rescheduled and the $550 base fee plus the hourly rate for any assessment time already spent will be charged to the laboratory.

Tests and Fees – On-Site Assessments

Assessment Fees

The Laboratory Assessment Program charges fees based on the time needed to complete an assessment. The laboratory will be invoiced after the final on-site assessment report is released.

Base Fee ($750)
A base fee of $750 will be charged for every on-site assessment regardless of scope or time needed to complete.  This fee covers the administrative costs associated with scheduling and traveling to the assessment location, as well as the process to review, send, and post the assessment report.

Half-Day Fee ($1,225)
A fee of $1,225 will be charged for each half-day (approximately four hours), or portion thereof, for each fully-trained assessor in the field assessing.  Laboratories will not be charged the costs of a second assessor if we are training or performing a competency check on our personnel. 

Note: Most assessments only require one assessor, however some assessments with large scopes require two.

Out-of-Sequence Fees
When a laboratory receives an assessment outside the normal AASHTO re:source tour schedule, an additional fee for the air travel and/or vehicle rental may be applied. Please contact us if interested in an out-of-sequence assessment to receive an estimate.
Cancellation Fees
If it is necessary to cancel or postpone your on-site assessment, please contact us as soon as possible. Laboratories that cancel or postpone their on-site assessment within 15 days of the start date of the assessment will be invoiced for the 20% of the estimated cost of the assessment or $750, whichever is greater plus expenses for changes to air travel, lodging, and/or vehicle rental. Laboratories that cancel or postpone their on-site assessment within 5 days of the start date of the assessment will be invoiced for the 40% of the estimated cost of the assessment or $1975, whichever is greater, plus expenses for changes to air travel, lodging, and/or vehicle rental.
International Laboratories (Including Canada)
International Laboratories
International laboratories include any laboratory outside of the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. 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.

All quality management system documentation must be provided in English, and an appropriate English translation of pertinent documentation must be provided. All on-site assessments are conducted in English. If necessary, an interpreter must be provided to facilitate the assessment. It is the responsibility of the laboratory to communicate with AASHTO re:source that an interpreter will be required prior to scheduling the assessment. All costs associated with hiring an interpreter or translating quality management system documentation will be the responsibility of the laboratory. If an assessment is scheduled without arrangements for an interpreter, and it becomes clear to AASHTO re:source management that an interpreter is in fact necessary, the assessment will be rescheduled and a $1000 cancellation fee, plus any associated travel costs incurred, will be charged to the laboratory. Out-of-sequence fees may be charged to the laboratory if rescheduling the assessment is necessary.

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