Government commences work on AVV scheme

The Department of Infrastructure has commenced working through the details of the proposed Authorised Vehicle Verifier (AVV) Scheme.

HVIA’s National Policy & Government Relations Manager Greg Forbes is seeking to identify members likely to become AVVs under the Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA) or are likely to use AVVs to be part of the consultation process. 

“An Authorised Vehicle Verifier’s role is to verify that vehicles involved in concessional import schemes under the RVSA meet the appropriate standards,” Mr Forbes explained.

“The main role of an AVV is to inspect vehicles that have been modified by a Registered Automotive Workshop (RAW) under section 48 of the RVSA Rules.

“AVV’s may also get involved in other vehicles imported under another concessional pathway (section 47) if the Department decides they need an inspection.”

AVV inspections may be required for Non RAV entry Vehicles (vehicle that are not generally used on a road Section 157) and Re-importation Import Approvals (vehicles that were previously approved for use in Australia but have been exported and are now being imported again Section 168).

If you are likely to become an AVV or engage an AVV please contact Greg directly: or 0437 923 755.
