National Heavy Vehicle Inspection Manual

July 6, 2016

Victoria and Queensland have joined the ACT, NSW, SA and Tasmania in implementing the National Heavy Vehicle Inspection Manual.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) believes the manual, which came into effect on 1 July, will improve vehicle standards compliance and help reduce vehicle downtime.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said national harmonisation was necessary as “trucks don’t stop at borders.” The manual applies to all vehicles that have a gross vehicle mass greater than 4.5 tonnes.

The NHVR is also planning to conduct a National Roadworthy Baseline Survey.
