Draft CTA applications will be deleted when ROVER is offline from COB 25th June to prepare the system for full Road Vehicle Standards Act commencement on 1 July.
HVIA members with draft component type approval (CTA) and Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles (SEVS) applications should complete and submit those applications before 5.00pm on 25 June because draft applications in the system will be deleted when the system goes down.
The Department says the planned outage will be longer than for previous upgrades to the system.
“This is due to the size and complexity of this release, and the consequent need to allow our IT team sufficient time to test the latest deployment to ensure it is successful and fully functional for when the system goes live on 1 July,” the advice says.
“As we are providing advance notice about system availability we hope potential applicants can work with the timeframes.”
This release will deliver an additional six modules over and above the four modules that are already available.
Two of these modules – Single Road Vehicle and Model Reports – are the most complex modules to be developed in ROVER.
Non urgent applications should be made when ROVER becomes available again.
The Department has advised that it will provide further details of the shut down on its website and in its newsletter.
