Providers of telematics services can apply for TCA certification to become a provider in the National Telematics Framework.


Certification is the process by which TCA determines whether a company seeking to become TCA certified for the IAP meets the probity, financial, functional and technical standards of the program. There are five stages in the certification process, as outlined in the IAP Certification Process Guideline.

Certification costs are currently being updated.

Any company interested in applying to become an IAP Service Provider should read the material herein and then contact TCA to discuss the certification process in detail, and to obtain the Certification Process Guideline.

Review and Audit

IAP Service Providers undergo a rigorous review and audit process by TCA.

To ensure that the IAP is consistently implemented and adopted by IAP Service Providers, TCA audits IAP Service Providers' adherence to the requirements of the TCA/IAP Service Provider Certification Agreement. TCA may, conduct such audits using its own employees and consultants to assist it or engage from time to time external parties to act on TCA's behalf to conduct all or part of the audit of IAP Service Providers.


The TCA budget is allocated using responsible, unambiguous principles.

Costs associated with the IAP are apportioned between Road Managers, Regulators and IAP Service Providers for the costs of services provided to them.

Applicants for IAP Certification and IAP Service Providers pay for the fees relating to their certification and on-going review and audit. The operational fee for IAP Service Providers is reviewed periodically. These fees are not directly payable by transport operators of vehicles participating in the IAP. Transport Operators of vehicles participating in the IAP negotiate any fees with their chosen IAP Service Provider.

We are currently updating the fee structure for new and existing applications of the National Telematics Framework. We will publish an update soon.
