In NSW, heavy vehicle drivers will see a National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) logo and new uniforms for heavy vehicle services and compliance officers from August 1st

The transition of heavy vehicle services from Transport for NSW to the NHVR is an important step toward establishing nationwide heavy vehicle compliance in NSW, according to NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto.

Senior Constable Steve Petroccitto says that heavy vehicle inspections, investigations, prosecutions, and road safety checks will now be conducted by the NHVR.

“310 Transport for NSW staff will continue to serve and support the heavy vehicle industry, and I am pleased to welcome them,”

“Drivers will see a new uniform and badge from today, but they will receive the same services and support, and they will be required to meet the same safety standards as they have in the past.” says Peteroccitto

NHVR will continue to provide services in NSW from more than 200 existing heavy vehicle inspection stations, safety stations, and on-road enforcement sites.

Tara McCarthy, Deputy Secretary for Safety, Environment, and Regulations at Transport for NSW says that NSW will continue to provide a range of other important heavy vehicle services, including licensing, registration, and tow truck investigations and enforcement.

“Transport for NSW staff transferring to the NHVR will help maintain a high safety standard across the country, and this is an important phase in the country’s reform process,” Ms McCarthy said.

The regulation of heavy vehicles is crucial to Australia’s economy, and borderless regulation will also ensure heavy vehicle safety and productivity.

It is great to see the NHVR taking charge of road freight across NSW, said Simon O’Hara, CEO of Road Freight NSW.

“Having direct and respectful discussions with the industry and regulator to overcome the challenges facing heavy vehicle operations across NSW is important,” Mr O’Hara said.

“Having a single regulator for the heavy vehicle industry across NSW is an important step forward for the industry and we look forward to the productivity and safety benefits,”

“I would like to express my gratitude to NSW DMR, RTA, and RMS for their diligent work over the years,” says Mr O’Hara

NHVR Chairman Mark Petroccitto says the organisation has been working closely with the NSW Government over the past six months to ensure a smooth transition.

“This is an ongoing effort to construct a single, uniform national heavy vehicle regulator,”

According to Petroccitto NSW has become the fifth Australian state—after South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania, and the Australian Capital Territory—to provide NHVR heavy vehicle regulatory services directly.

All Australian states and territories except the Northern Territory and Western Australia are subject to the Heavy Vehicle National Law, which is administered by the NHVR and was established in 2013
