Infrastructure updates on ROVER and RVSA

The Department of Infrastructure has added functionality to the Component Type Approval sections of the Road Vehicle Regulation (ROVER) system to allow users to vary, suspend or revoke their approvals.

They have also updated the guide to component type approvals on their website to reflect these changes.

They have also updated the provisions related to trailers less than 4.5 tonnes and developed a diagram explaining the approval pathways for entrance into the Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV).

Infrastructure has also announced it will shortly provide an updated roadmap for the RVSA transition.

HVIA’s Talk the Torque weekly newsletter will provide an update when the new roadmap is published.

We will also provide and update on the RVSA implementation in the next round of State Committee meetings.

Please contact Greg Forbes at or on 0437 923 755, if you have any questions related to the RVSA transition and how it will impact on your business.
