Return to On-Site Assessments

Sep 29, 2021

After careful planning, AASHTO will begin conducting on-site assessments in states/territories where available information indicates that COVID-19 conditions are safe for travel.  COVID-19 data will be monitored continually until all assessments in the state are complete. 

Duty of Care

The safety of our customers and laboratory assessors is AASHTO’s prime concern as we return to on-site assessments.  To help ensure assessments are conducted in a safe environment, AASHTO is committed to the actions described in our Duty of Care policy.

What to Expect Next

Until you hear from us, you can assume your upcoming assessment will be a remote assessment.  You can review the Estimated Assessment Schedule any time to check for updates.

  • Approx. 4 months before we begin conducting assessments: All laboratories in your state/territory will be notified to submit their assessment request.
  • Approx. 8 weeks before assessments are scheduled to begin: If we anticipate transitioning your laboratory’s assessment from remote to on-site, you will receive an email with further details.
  • Anytime up to the date of your on-site assessment: If data indicates that conditions have worsened, all assessments in a state/territory may be changed back to remote.

If AASHTO re:source makes the decision to change assessments from on-site to remote, laboratories affected will be notified individually via email and direct communication from their assigned laboratory assessor(s). Additionally, the laboratory will be charged fees at the remote assessment rate.
