It’s not too late to have your say on PBS 2.0

Earlier today HVIA held its second member Webinar seeking feedback on the PBS 2.0 discussion paper published by the NHVR late last year.

HVIA’s National Manager Policy and Government Relations Greg Forbes said the level of member engagement shows how important PBS is to the heavy vehicle industry.

“I am very happy with the response we’ve had with approximately thirty attendees joining discussions in the webinar series, including specialist assessors and certifiers last week, and HVIA members today,” Mr Forbes said.

Mr Forbes pointed to lively discussions on several issues including:

  • modification of the PBS standards framework to incorporate new technologies and foster innovation,
  • the NHVRs proposed assurance framework and
  • the problems with the PBS access framework.

“The next step for HVIA is preparing our draft response to the discussion paper which we aim to circulate to members by the end of this month,” he added.

“If anyone missed the webinars and wants input into the draft, I would encourage them to reach out to Adam or myself as soon as possible.

“We will then be happy to take feedback on the draft response up until 14 February, before submissions on the discussion paper close on 17 February.”
