Setting the Agenda

  1. National Heavy Vehicle Safety Strategy
  2. National Heavy Vehicle Compliance and Assurance Strategy
  3. National Heavy Vehicle Productivity Strategy

These three strategies underpin the Strategic Directions 2016 document which outlines the NHVR’s strategic priorities for the next 10 years.

Strategic Directions

This document articulates our long term vision for the regulation of the heavy vehicle industry in this country, identifies the key challenges, and outlines the strategies we propose to achieve our aims in the coming years. It has two purposes:

  1. To signal to industry, regulatory partners and other stakeholders, what our major regulatory challenges are and the actions we will take to address them.
  2. To give direction, focus and guidance to our organisation in performing our current and future activities.
