HVNL reform options on the table for discussion

The next phase of the Heavy Vehicle National Law review has begun with publication of a consultation regulation impact statement by the National Transport Commission.

The NTC is reviewing the HVNL and its supporting regulations at the behest of Transport Ministers after a meeting in November 2018.

To date, the review has found that the HVNL’s scope in the broader regulatory context – and its approach – adequately balances road safety and productivity goals. As a result, the review is now focused on identifying reforms that could improve the HVNL’s effectiveness.

The RIS seeks to identify the incremental costs and benefits of reform options developed by the NTC after industry and governments consultations in 2019.
