The Australian Light Vehicle Standards Rules 2015 and the Heavy Vehicle (Vehicle Standards) National Regulation are periodically reviewed to ensure they remain contemporary, and aligned with agreed policy to promote improved transport productivity, transport system safety and regulatory efficiency.
We commenced the 2019 maintenance review in February. The consultation period for this amendment package will remain open until the 23 September 2019. You can download the consultation document and make a submission below under the 'Get Involved' tab.
More details about the amendments are also available in the 'Publications' tab below.
Following public consultation, we expect to make recommendations to ministers in November 2019.
In November 2018, the Transport and Infrastructure Council approved changes to the Heavy Vehicle (Vehicle Standards) National Regulations and the Australian Light Vehicle Standards. Once these changes come into effect, they will be applied by state and territory legislation.
The Heavy Vehicle (Vehicle Standards) National Regulation Amendment Regulation 2018 is available in the publications section below.
