Cost recovery under RVSA on the table

The Department of Infrastructure has released a Draft Cost Recovery Implementation Statement which outlines the charges the Department plans to use when the Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA) is implemented.

HVIA’s Greg Forbes is looking to affected members to assist in developing an informed response.

“HVIA is concerned that the proposed fee changes will increase costs to our industry and is keen to ensure that monitoring systems are put into place before the new charges are implemented,” Mr Forbes said.

“In view of the recent Productivity Commission Draft Report Recommendation 6.5 which suggests that compliance costs should be monitored, HVIA is interested in identifying members who use the Department of Infrastructures services.

“We will develop and submit a comprehensive cost model which includes both direct and indirect compliance costs for users of the Department’s services.”

As a result of representations from HVIA, the RVSA implementation date was deferred from 10 December this year to a date to be declared by proclamation. This implementation date must be before 1 July 2021.

Please contact HVIA’s National Manager of Policy and Government Relations if you are interested in participating in the development of a suitable costing methodology. 0437923755

Feedback on the proposed charges can also be provided to the Department directly.
