Roads and Maritime Services administers the Authorised Inspection Station (AIS) scheme. Once AIS authorisation has been obtained, various accreditations may be added, subject to Roads and Maritime Services approval, including the new Authorised Crane Inspection Station (ACIS) scheme.
Examiners authorised under ACIS are accredited to inspect SP2 cranes. These are truck-based or purpose-built mobile cranes that are over 12 tonnes GVM and overmass on one or more axles or axle groups.
Training for AIS authorisation and the various additional accreditations are conducted by TAFE.

Unlike HVAIS inspections, ACIS inspections may be performed at the crane’s location provided there is a suitable inspection location (as defined by the AIS Business Rules). Should travel be required, Examiners may charge travel costs in addition to an inspection fee. Roads and Maritime Services recommends travel costs are agreed prior to the travel commencing.
A number of fact sheets are available to download.
