Heavy vehicle laws delayed

The new Heavy Vehicle National Law will start in October instead of September because of IT problems surrounding the permit application system.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) said in a media statement that it had identified IT integration problems that must be fixed before the new application system goes live.

The system is expected to process up to 100,000 applications per year.

“Until our new start date, though, it’s business as usual for heavy vehicle operators and drivers,” said NHVR CEO Richard Hancock.

“Come to us for [the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme] and [Performance-Based Standard] services as you have been since January.

“Stick with your local road transport authority for all other road transport business with government, including access, vehicle standards and fatigue management.”

Once implemented, the new laws will apply in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia.
