Delivering recommendations to ministers


In June 2020 ministers agreed to work towards establishing a national approach to regulating automated vehicles when they are commercially deployed on our roads.

Ministers agreed the approach will include a national regulator and a national law, supported by a general safety duty.

We will work, in partnership with Australian governments, to further develop the approach and report back to the Transport and Infrastructure Council for decisions on implementation in the first half of 2021.
