NTC encourages industry comment on HVNL review

The National Transport Commission (NTC) is seeking feedback on an issues paper about a risk-based approach to regulating heavy vehicles in light of Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).

The purpose of the paper, according to the NTC, is to: describe good regulation and options for regulatory approaches; summarise the current state of HVNL; identify and confirm problems with the current regulatory approach; and seek preliminary views on ways to improve heavy vehicle regulation.

The NTC said this paper is the first of eight in a rolling consultation. The Commission welcomes written submissions and online feedback by Friday 31 May 2019.

The next two issues papers are reportedly due for release late April and will explore safer vehicles and effective fatigue management.

Last month, the NTC launched a microsite dedicated to the HVNL review.
