Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA) (Online)

Thu 15th April @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Information Sessions April 2021

HVIA is keen to ensure that all its members are prepared for the implementation of the Road Vehicle Standards Act on 1 July 2021.

It is critical that component and vehicle manufacturers or importers understand the implications of these changes for their business.

If everyone is not prepared there is a risk that completed vehicles will not be able to be registered due to non-compliance with the new legislation.

From 1 July 2021:

  1. All new heavy vehicles will need to be loaded onto the Register of Authorised Vehicles (RAV)
    – Vehicles that are not on the RAV will not be able to be registered
  2. Vehicle Manufacturers will be able to commence rolling over existing Identity Plate approvals (IPAs) to the new Vehicle Type Approvals (VTAs).
    – Vehicle Manufacturers will have only six months to complete the roll over process
  3. New vehicle designs or variations to existing designs will need to be processed through the new legislation and the new ROVER software
    Vehicle Manufacturers need to understand the new evidence and conformity of production requirements
    – Existing Component Registration Number (CRNs) and Sub Assembly Registration Numbers (SARNs) will not be able to be used for variations or for the new VTAs.
    – Component Manufacturers will need to have a  Component Type Approval (CTA) for their products to be used in variations or new VTA applications. 

HVIA will be running two sessions each day:

  1. The first session focused on component manufacturers.
  2. The second session focused on vehicle manufacturers.

Manufacturers interested in these sessions are encouraged to:

  1. Read the checklists HVIA has developed to assess your readiness for the new legislation
  2. Identify any concerns you have over the implementation of the new legislation such as:
    – Clarification of guidance material
    – Policy/ Procedural Issues
    – Software issues
    – Compliance/Cost Issues
  3. Forward these concerns to Greg Forbes g.forbes@hvia.asn.au 0437923755 so they are included for discussion on the day.
