Ministers have asked the National Transport Commission (NTC) to lead the review of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) and its supporting regulations.

NTC recognises that the current law is not best practice – it’s outdated, complex, long, prescriptive and does not support road safety outcomes. The NTC are going back to basics to review the law from first principles.

The HVNL Review will result in performance-based and outcomes-focused regulation that will:

  • improve safety for all road users
  • support increased economic productivity and innovation
  • simplify administration and enforcement of the law
  • support the use of new technologies and methods of operation, and
  • provide flexible, outcome-focused compliance options.
