Heavy Vehicle National Law Review

Heavy Vehicle National Law Review

The National Transport Commission (NTC) is leading the review of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) and its supporting regulations.

The HVNL Review will result in performance-based and outcomes-focused regulation that will:

improve safety for all road users
support increased economic productivity and innovation
simplify administration and enforcement of the law
support the use of new technologies and methods of operation, and
provide flexible, outcome-focused compliance options.

The next phase of the National Transport Commission’s heavy vehicle national law review will involve four intergovernmental and industry workshops planned for late November and December 2019.

These workshops will inform the suite of policy options for formal and detailed regulatory impact assessment.

Further details on the workshops will be provided via the review website. This will be followed by the development of a Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement in early 2020.
