Key messages

  • The National Transport Commission (NTC) has been consulting on key issues for a better Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL).
  • We are now pivoting from identifying problems to generating solutions.
  • The next phase of work is about developing and analysing policy options.

What have we heard?

The NTC has sought ideas for a better HVNL. So far we have consulted on key issues in the current HVNL, and how to to develop a modern, outcomes-focused law that improves safety and supports productivity.

Government, regulators, drivers, operators, industry bodies, and members of the public have provided detailed and constructive submissions. Now we are shifting from identifying issues to developing solutions.

This section provides a summary of consultation outcomes of the issues paper phase. The purpose is to:

  • tell you what we have heard, including major points of agreement and disagreement; and
  • identify policy options for the future HVNL

We want continued engagement with all stakeholders to ensure we have the best set of policy options to inform the Consultation regulatory impact statement.
