Implementation team lined up to address RVSA

The Department of Infrastructure has released two new guidance documents the Guide to Vehicle Type Approval Opt-in Arrangements and the Guide to Vehicle Type Approvals. 

HVIA has updated its checklists for Manufacturers regarding Identity Plate Approvals and Vehicle Type Approvals to incorporate references to these new documents.

Manufacturers of vehicles are encouraged to read these documents to ensure they are prepared for the implementation of the new legislation which commences on 1 July 2021.

Manufacturers should make sure they include looking at the self-assessment checklist and appendices in both documents.

HVIA is making arrangements for Question & Answer sessions with key Department of Infrastructure personnel on the 14th and 15th of April.

Please mark these dates in your calendars and we will be back in touch with more detail closer to the event.

Please forward any issues that require clarification or questions regarding these documents or the application process to Greg Forbes on 0437 923 755 or

This input will form the agenda for the April session.
