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:
- 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
- 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
- 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:
- The first session focused on component manufacturers.
- The second session focused on vehicle manufacturers.
Manufacturers interested in these sessions are encouraged to:
- Read the checklists HVIA has developed to assess your readiness for the new legislation
- 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
- Forward these concerns to Greg Forbes email@example.com 0437923755 so they are included for discussion on the day.
