A Case for Change has been developed by the Transport and Logistics IRC to address the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) regulatory reforms concerning Freight Forwarding and Chain of Responsibility.

The proposed review of TLI50316 Diploma of International Freight Forwarding and three existing Chain of Responsibility Units of Competency is aimed at addressing the industry’s need to maintain regulatory compliance.

TLI50316 Diploma of International Freight Forwarding

Regulatory changes to Biosecurity are required to be incorporated into the qualification and Units of Competency, enabling the compliant shipping of Australian goods to countries around the world. These changes require shippers to utilise new documentation and processes, ensuring shipped international freight meets Australian and international regulations.

Chain of Responsibility Units of Competency

This review is considered imperative to ensure Australian Transport and Logistics enterprises remain viable, and compliant with regulatory requirements. HVNL is being amended to safeguard every party in the heavy vehicle transport supply chain and to ensure the safety of transport activities. This Case for Change will ensure Chain of Responsibility legislation is aligned with relevant workplace health and safety regulations.
