The NHVR has stepped in to alleviate concerns that changes to the design approvals process on the regulator’s PBS Portal will increase costs to industry.
HVIA National Policy and Government Relations Manager Greg Forbes gave credit to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator for their prompt response.
“The NHVR organised a webinar in early August and followed up with some changes to the portal to address the issues raised by HVIA members,” Mr Forbes said.
“Last week the NHVR agreed that it would allow an interim option for people using the portal to either choose the old or new methods of loading Design Approvals and undertook to make some improvements to the new portal approach to address our members’ concerns.
“Under the new arrangements, users can choose to use either the short-form or long-form application.
“These changes took effect on Monday 14 August.”

Mr Forbes said the NHVR Digital Products team deserves commendation.
“The team at the NHVR have done a great job listening to feedback and a helpful and constructive response,” he said.
“HVIA believes that improving the portal is a great way to improve service to industry and we look forward to working with the NHVR with their digitalization program.”
