Economic assessment of options for the ensuring compliance with heavy vehicle roadworthiness standards

The Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) commenced in all jurisdictions (except Northern Territory and Western Australia) in February 2014. A key objective of the HVNL is to ensure that heavy vehicles operating on Australian roads are roadworthy. Under the HVNL jurisdictions have been able to apply different approaches to the compliance and enforcement of vehicle roadworthiness standards. Hence, the issue of how best to regulate heavy vehicle roadworthiness remains unresolved. This report presents a cost-benefit analysis of a range of options that have been proposed for regulating compliance with heavy vehicle roadworthiness standards under the HVNL.
