A national in-service safety law for automated vehicles

This discussion paper follows infrastructure and transport ministers’ endorsement of a national regulatory approach to the in-service safety of automated vehicles. Ministers agreed to new national law that will establish a general safety duty on entities responsible for automated driving systems, due diligence obligations on their executive officers and a new national regulator for the in-service safety of automated vehicles. This discussion paper further develops the content of the national law, including proposals for the operation of the duties on regulated parties, the management of market exit of regulated parties and modifications to automated vehicles, the regulator’s compliance and enforcement approach and its interaction with other agencies including information exchange. It also explains how the national law will work under two different legislative implementation options.
