Last week HVIA Members were advised that a software bug meant the Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV) was not accurately reflecting the B-Double compliance of vehicles. The issue is now resolved.
The issue only affected vehicles with a RAV entry date from 2 March 2022.
HVIA Policy and Government Relations Manager Greg Forbes said the Department of Infrastructure has reported success on remediating the issue with a solution deployed today, Wednesday 16 March.
“We are pleased to let you know that the recent B-Double RAV issue has now been rectified and all RAV entries should now reflect their RAV submission details,” Mr Forbes said.
Mr Forbes said that affected RAV entries will be corrected now that the bug is fixed.
“The Department has advised that rectification of affected vehicles on the RAV may take some time to complete.
“The Department of Infrastructure is aware that this has caused issues with registration of affected vehicles and they have notified all state and territory registration authorities of this”.
If you experience any issues with registering an affected vehicle, please direct the registration authority to the published type approval.
There is a B-Double hotline available to registration authorities to assist with confirmation of the issue and vehicle approval details: 02 6274 8135.
