CoR changes coming soon

Reforms to the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws will be implemented from 1 October, with timing for the changes confirmed by Queensland Transport and Main Road Minister, Mark Bailey.

National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) CEO, Sal Petroccitto, said the start date for the reforms follows lengthy consultation and information for heavy vehicle businesses over the past 18 months.

“The NHVR has been engaging with many of the 165,000 businesses which make up the heavy vehicle supply chain, and conducted more than 100 workshops,” said Petroccitto.

“October 1 provides the additional time that some sectors were asking for to prepare for the changes, particularly the agricultural sector.

“This change to CoR laws is a significant leap forward in recognising everyone in the heavy vehicle supply chain has a role to play in ensuring safety.

“The reforms complement national workplace safety laws, and place a positive duty-of-care on supply chain parties.

“Duty holders who assess their risks and manage them will be complying with both the HVNL and workplace safety law,” he said.

The NHVR has information available including CoR Gap Assessment tools, role-specific fact sheets, Safety Management System templates and tools, and videos and podcasts.
