We reviewed the effectiveness of the Performance-based Standards (PBS) scheme and how it works to find new ways of improving the scheme.
The review considered:
- whether the PBS scheme was meeting its original policy intent
- whether the scheme created barriers to operating as an effective mechanism for the development, sale and commercialisation of innovative vehicles
- the productivity, safety and environmental impacts of the scheme
- possible improvements to the system (including the potential removal of any unnecessary market barriers or administrative costs).
