Levels of Assurance

Depending on the level of assurance required, TCA may approve:

ASPs may be approved to offer multiple applications and features – with different levels of assurance – through the NTF.

There are a few things application service providers (ASPs) need to know:

  1. TCA approves providers wanting to offer applications through the National Telematics Framework
  2. Providers may be approved to offer multiple applications and features through the Framework
  3. Providers are approved by different levels of assurance 
  4. Providers meet the costs associated with TCA’s approval process. Costs are influenced by:
    • What application/s the provider wants to offer
    • The levels of assurance required for those applications
    • Approvals already granted to providers through the National Telematics Framework – including existing applications (and levels of assurance already offered by individual providers) and TCA-approved hardware – will be recognised for use in additional applications
    • The preparation of information by the provider so that TCA can perform an assessment (the better prepared a provider is, the more streamlined the process).

Note: Some applications and levels of assurance require TCA-approved telematics devices and on-board mass (OBM) systems.
