Queensland Parliament Passes National Heavy Vehicle Law Amendments

The latest amendments to National Heavy Vehicle Law, passed in Queensland Parliament recently, will hopefully result in better safety outcomes and stronger Chain of Responsibility, according to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator.

According to NHVR Acting CEO, Ray Hassall, the amendments to the law are a welcomed improvement, important in creating a more “robust” heavy vehicle industry. The amendments take us a step closer to recognising everyone in the supply chain as a contributor to safety not just the driver and operator.

The NHVR would be providing information and educational resources to the industry to help educate them about the changes.

The reforms will probably come into effect in mid-2018, allowing parties in the chain time to prepare themselves.
