Why we’re consulting
The purpose of this consultation is to seek your feedback on existing Grain Harvest Management Schemes (GHMS), as well as exploring the possibility of a national Harvest Mass Management Scheme (HMMS).
What is it?
Currently, there are a range of GHMS in operation nationally, with differing allowances for mass and operational conditions in each state. In February 2019, the NHVR announced that it will be reviewing these GHMS.
The aim of the review is to facilitate processes that increase cross border ease of access, in order to boost regional industries, growing regional economies and better connect our regions.
The review may recommend developing a set of national standards in relation to GHMS operator accreditation, vehicle conditions, grain receiver processes (including data reporting) and other applicable conditions to ensure consistency for operators and businesses.
This issues paper is an opportunity for operators, drivers, farmers, receivers and regulators to highlight major issues experienced in relation to GHMS and grain transportation.
The feedback received on the issues paper will form the basis of a discussion paper.
Submissions to the Issues Paper have closed. The NHVR is currently assessing submissions and developing a discussion paper for further feedback.
