Intelligent Access Program (IAP) stage 1 implementation: draft regulatory impact statement

This regulatory impact statement RIS assesses the regulatory proposal for Stage 1 of the Intelligent Access Program (IAP), a voluntary program in which remote monitoring of heavy vehicles using vehicle telematics technology will support regulatory concessions schemes. This initial stage of IAP will effectively establish a framework to govern the certification and auditing of IAP Service Providers. Also included in the proposal are a set of Stage 1 applications and amendments to the national model Road Transport Reform (Compliance and Enforcement) Bill. The objective of the regulatory proposal is to facilitate safer and more efficient use of the national road network (that is, more tonne kilometres for a given length and condition of road) through better and more predictable compliance with road transport laws. By accurately remotely monitoring compliance of heavy commercial vehicles to ensure that they are complying with their permitted operating conditions, the IAP provides new opportunities for both jurisdictions and transport operators to optimise performance of their businesses in terms of both their efficiency and safety, and also to maximise the performance of the existing (and future) road infrastructure.
