Purpose

The purpose of this project is to improve safety, productivity and uptake of telematics in the heavy vehicle industry by optimising current telematics systems whilst also developing the best-practice model for the future.

The project implements six recommendations that will clarify the use of telematics for regulatory purposes.

Next steps

The NTC will work closely with the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), road transport agencies, the road transport industry, Transport Certification Australia (TCA) and technology providers, to implement the recommendations from the review of regulatory telematics.

Background

In September 2017, the Transport and Infrastructure Senior Officials’ Committee asked the NTC to review the key policies governing the use and oversight of regulatory telematics.

In May 2018, the Transport and Infrastructure Council approved the review of regulatory telematics report and six recommendations. These include:

  1. TCA will examine the feasibility of improving the Intelligent Access Program (IAP).
  2. The NTC will develop national guidelines to assist agency decision-making when assessing new IAP applications.
  3. The NHVR will develop a compliance and enforcement policy for regulatory telematics.
  4. The NHVR will monitor the implementation of electronic work diaries and report on their effectiveness.
  5. The NTC, in consultation with relevant stakeholders, will develop a best practice model for regulatory telematics.
  6. The NTC, in consultation with relevant stakeholders, will assess whether the best practice model should be legislated and included in the Heavy Vehicle National Law.
