The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) will host a series of forums next week to explain the new national law to industry’s frontline. Australia’s first heavy vehicle rule book will take effect on 10 February 2014.
NHVR CEO Richard Hancock explains the NHVR already has a proven track record of engagement with the heavy vehicle industry and is grateful for the continued support from all industry sectors for the new national law.
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.
NHVR will also be unveiling details of their Access Management System and Journey Planner, two key components of the one-stop-shop for access permit applications.
Dates, locations and details of the industry forums are available on the NHVR website.
The Brisbane-based NHVR currently manages National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) services and Performance-Based Standards (PBS) design and vehicle approvals.
