With the Road Vehicle Standards Act goes live in four months, manufacturers of vehicles and suppliers of parts need to make sure they are prepared.
HVIA’s National Policy and Government Relations Manager, Greg Forbes says that if manufacturers do not prepare they could be caught with vehicles that can’t get registered.
“HVIA has put together three checklists for members with suggestions on key activities they need to undertake to ensure they are prepared” Mr Forbes said.
“Attendees at the next round of State Committee meetings will look at the checklists and we will answer any questions surrounding them.”
The checklists cover:
- Manufacturers – how to prepare for the Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV)
- Manufacturers – a strategy to deal with the transition from Identity Plate Approvals (IPAs) to Vehicle Type Approvals (VTAs)
- Component Suppliers – preparing themselves and their customers for the transition to Component Type Approvals (CTAs)
This round of State Committee meetings start next week; register to attend below.
