Terms of Use

NHVR has created the Chain of Responsibility Gap Assessment tool (the Tool) to draw your attention to certain obligations under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (the Law) and help you focus on particular parts of the Law that may be relevant to you.

After commencing your assessment, you have a maximum of 14 days to return and complete your assessment.

When you have answered all the questions in a section, you will receive a report with recommendations. The recommendations provided to you depend on your answers to the questions and are intended as guidance only. The recommendations are not legal advice and do not provide an assessment of your business practices or your compliance with the Law. The recommendations are provided on the understanding that you, or your legal advisors, will independently assess your own circumstances to determine the actions necessary to comply with the Law. Doing the assessment and following its recommendations does not relieve you of your obligations under the Law.

NHVR accepts no responsibility for damage or loss that results from your reliance on the assessment or its recommendations. By accepting these Terms of Use, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold NHVR harmless from any and all claims, liability, injuries, expenses, losses, damages or costs you that arising out of or in connection with your use of the Tool, your reliance upon the recommendations provided by the Tool, or as a result of inaccurate or incomplete information contained in the Tool or the recommendations.

We reserve the right to update or amend these Terms of Use at any time.

These Terms of Use are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws in force in Queensland, Australia, and you unconditionally submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Queensland, Australia.
