Review of the Heavy Vehicle National Law

Tuesday 22 October 2019 — Newsletter #11

We are about to wrap up the end of our consultation on key issues for a better Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL). We are now pivoting from identifying problems to generating solutions.

Suggested policy options for a better HVNL
The next phase of work is about developing and analysing policy options for the future HVNL.
We are progressively adding to a summary of outcomes on what we have heard from consultation. The purpose is to share what we have heard, including major points of agreement and disagreement.

We are also developing and collating suggested policy options on the HVNL review site. These suggested policy options will inform the Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) to be released in early 2020.

We want to continue hearing from you to ensure we have a comprehensive set of suggested policy options to inform this Consultation RIS.
You can suggest policy options on the HVNL review site and provide feedback on the suggested policy options we publish.

Issues papers – update and next steps
In line with stakeholder feedback, we are now moving to developing and analysing policy options. As a result, we will not publish a planned eighth issues paper on other policy matters. This work will be covered in the policy options phase.
Reminder: Consultation on final issues papers closing soon
We want to hear your views on assurance models and effective enforcement under the HVNL. You can upload a written submission or submit your ideas through the HVNL review site.
Consultation for Assurance models closes Friday, 25 October 2019.
Consultation for Effective enforcement closes Thursday, 31 October 2019.
