The National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (NCUTCD) or the “National Committee” is an organization whose purpose is to assist in the development of standards, guides and warrants for traffic control devices and practices used to regulate, warn and guide traffic on streets and highways. The NCUTCD recommends to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and to other appropriate agencies proposed revisions and interpretations to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) and other accepted national standards. NCUTCD develops public and professional awareness of the principles of safe traffic control devices and practices and provides a forum for qualified individuals with diverse backgrounds and viewpoints to exchange professional information.

The National Committee is supported by 20 sponsoring organizations, each of which appoints one or more “Members” and “Associate Members” who constitute the voting delegates to the NCUTCD. APWA is one of the 20 sponsoring organizations.

Involves two meetings per year. Requires an annual written report submitted to APWA. Appointee is responsible for expenses.
