Latest from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator

The Transport and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2014 was introduced to the Queensland Parliament in April to reduce the paperwork burden affecting drivers and operators of accredited heavy vehicles.

Once passed into law, drivers will no longer need to carry documents that prove their employers enrolment in the Mass or Maintenance Management accreditation schemes, or that the driver is operating under those schemes.

Nor will employers be liable for a driver’s failure to carry and produce these documents on demand or return the documents to their employer if they change jobs.

Until such time as this legislation is passed, The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator has authorised officers not to re-quest, nor to require the production of these documents or to issue any sanctions for failure to carry or produce these documents.
