National Transport Commission releases new Load Restraint Guide

The National Transport Commission (NTC) has now completed a review and update of the Load Restraint Guide in close consultation with stakeholders. The information provided in the new guide is based on the key steps involved in transporting loads to assist heavy vehicle drivers, operators and other parties to develop load restraint systems to suit their individual requirements.

This review ensured that the NTC Load Restraint Guide is:

  • easy to locate, understand, and meets the needs of the people who use it
  • accurate, up to date, and reflects the practices that have developed since the last edition of the guide was published in 2004.

This is the first time a version focusing on light vehicles has been available, specifically for vehicles under 4.5 tonnes.
