A national framework for regulation, registration and licensing of heavy vehicles

This consultation regulatory impact statement (RIS) focuses on the current heavy vehicle regulatory environment with an emphasis on the legal frameworks and their interaction and operation. A financial and economic analysis (a cost-benefit analysis) is being conducted concurrently, to examine the financial and economic imperatives for regulatory reform. This analysis will be included in the final RIS. This document seeks feedback about the costs and benefits of a national regulatory approach to heavy vehicle reform. Representatives of the Commonwealth Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government (DITRDLG) and the relevant state and territory road and transport agencies will visit selected cities and regional centres during January and February 2009 to meet with stakeholders and discuss the proposed reforms. A second round of consultation is anticipated in March-April that will provide further details to stakeholders on the cost-benefit analysis. That feedback will be reported and assessed in a final RIS that will be prepared for consideration by the Australian Transport Council and the Council of Australian Governments.
