The Federal Government is planning to establish the Office of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator(NHVR) to be fully operational by January 1, 2013 and responsible for regulating all vehicles in Australia over 4.5 tonnes.  One of the roles of the NHVR will be to issue permits for access including local roads for non standard vehicles. The draft legislation dealing with this part of the role of the NHVR is available for downloading and is 625 pages long.

Integral to establishing an independent National Heavy Vehicle Regulator is the release of the Draft Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) and the draft Heavy Vehicle National Law.

Interested stakeholders are encouraged to make a submission on the proposed law by 6 May 2011, either online or by mail to the National Transport Commission.
