The National Transport Commission (NTC) have released a consultation Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) for the Review of the Heavy Vehicle National Law.

The timeframe for consultation has not been finalised due to uncertainties around the impact of the Covid Virus, however the NTC expect to present formal policy proposals to ministers in the first half of 2021.

The RIS outlines a number of options for changes to the Law and analyses the impacts these changes may have. The full RIS is available here (PDF).

The NTC have also developed a complementary short-form document (HVNL 2.0) to outline one potential scenario for the future HVNL.  

The NTC says the example scenario is not a set of preferred options – it’s just one example of how options in the RIS can work together as a system.

The RIS covers more reform options for the HVNL, all of which will be considered for the future HVNL. It also presents the problems each option strives to address and analyses the likely impacts of each policy option.

HVNL 2.0 is designed to describe how a future HVNL could work. The NTC wants to hear from you on how you think the new HVNL should work.

There are a range of ways you can get involved:

  • Make a submission via the ‘Have your say’ link on the NTC website
  • Visit the HVNL review microsite for polls, surveys and a message board 
  • Register your interest for an online forum via the microsite or email at hvnlreview@ntc.gov.au.
