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. 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.
