New Products Information

On occasion, products come to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) for evaluation that are not covered by specifications, plans, or other department standards.

In such instances, vendors should submit a new products application.

The new products committee evaluates these items.

The committee is composed of members from each of the divisions in the department. Meetings are held twice a year.

Vendors are asked to supply the committee with product information and samples.

It is not necessary to submit a new products application if your product is covered by VDOT specifications and / or standards. To verify your product is covered by VDOT specifications and/or standards, refer to:
