The Summary of consultation outcomes report cover


The next step of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) review sees the National Transport Commission (NTC) publish a summary of consultation outcomes report, bringing together more than 250 formal and over 300 informal submissions.

The information contained within the report, a compilation of its summary of seven issues papers seeking feedback on the HVNL and opportunities to improve it, will ultimately form the options for the future law.

It also follows four policy solution workshops the NTC hosted in November and December.

"Industry, regulator and government stakeholders participated to inform policy options for inclusion in the next phase of the review," the commission says.

For the next phase of the review, the NTC is developing a Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS).

"The Consultation RIS will be a major opportunity for you to have your say on specific policy proposals," NTC notes.

According to the NTC, the aim is that the future HVNL will:

▪ improve safety for all road users

▪ support increased economic productivity and innovation

▪ simplify the HVNL, its administration and enforcement of the law

▪ support the use of new technologies and methods of operation

▪ provide flexible, outcome-focused compliance options.

The summary of consultation outcomes report is available here.
