Unauthorised Use of Traffic Management Designer Credentials
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (the department) has seen several instances of Traffic Management Designers’ (TMD) names, electronic signatures and numbers being used without their authority.
The purpose of this fact sheet is to advise professionals in the traffic management industry that instances of inappropriate and intentionally fraudulent use of TMD credentials do occur, what to do if you identify suspected inappropriate use, and how you can reduce the risk of this happening to you.
This typically occurs due to lax practices and procedureswithin organisations (for example, an employee accessing and applying a TMD’s electronic signature without express authority). However, there are extreme cases where use of a TMD’s name, electronic signature and number have been intentionally fraudulent.
