NHVR road show to explain heavy vehicle rule book

With Australia’s first heavy vehicle rule book delayed to February 2014, the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) will hit the road next week to explain the new national law to industry’s frontline.

NHVR CEO, Richard Hancock, said the Regulator already had a proven track record of engagement with the heavy vehicle industry and was grateful for the continued support from all industry sectors for the new national law.

“Industry has kept the faith and, with the date set for the new rule book, now is the time to meet with operators and drivers across the country to explain in detail what this means for them and how to do business with us,” he said.

NHVR staff will host forums in capital cities and key regional locations in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia, all jurisdictions where the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) will commence early next year.

Mr Hancock said attendees can expect to hear about streamlined and practical operations for heavy vehicle access, fatigue management and vehicle inspection standards, as well as more consistent on-road compliance and enforcement outcomes; all matters that affect the day-to-day business of Australia’s heavy vehicle operators and drivers.

“We will also be unveiling details of our Access Management System and Journey Planner, two key components of the one-stop-shop for access permit applications.”
