Wheels are now in motion to implement significant CoR reforms in 2018, with the drafting of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2018, due to be enacted sooner rather than later.

The 2018 Bill

  • extends the ‘due diligence’ obligation by requiring executive officers to exercise due diligence to ensure their businesses comply with all major safety related duties in the HVNL
  • makes provision for the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator to create and maintain a database of heavy vehicles. This database will allow for the identification of a heavy vehicle (and its operator) registered under the HVNL (as enacted in each participating jurisdiction)

When fully implemented, the 2018 CoR reforms will:

  • align CoR laws more closely with workplace health and safety laws
  • Increase Executive Officer liability
  • Significantly increase maximum fines & penalties to up to $3million and 5 years jail per serious incident
  • Extend supply chain responsibility to Equipment Maintenance & Roadworthiness

To be ready for CoR reforms in 2018 your business needs to have a CoR management system that ensures that it, and its outsourced providers
