The Tourist Attraction Signposting Assessment Committee (TASAC) is a group formed by the NSW State Government to have overall responsibility for the planning and implementation of tourist signposting systems which:
- safely and efficiently guide motorists to their destination
- inform visitors of the range of major attractions and services available within a destination.
Tourist Signposting Policy
The Tourist Signposting Guidelines outline the policy in New South Wales for all tourist signposting. The guidelines provide the categories of signposting and the criteria and technical specifications for sign design and installation. All decisions regarding tourist signposting made by TASAC are based on the policy contained within the manual.
TASAC is made up of representatives from Destination NSW (DNSW) and the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), with the support of Regional Tourism Organisations (RTOs), local tourism managers and a Secretariat. All TASAC members participate equally in providing feedback to any individual or group making representations to TASAC. Members from DNSW and the RMS determine the eligibility status of your application.

- developing Tourist Signposting Policy for New South Wales
