The Chain of Responsibility Gap Assessment Tool (the Tool) is designed to draw your attention to particular obligations under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (the Law) that may be relevant to you, based on your answers to questions. The Tool does not provide legal advice. The Tool does not assess your compliance with the Law. Doing the assessment and following its recommendations does not relieve you of your obligations under the Law.

The recommendations provided depend on your answers to questions and are intended only to provide guidance to you. They 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.

Please note: Some parts of the Tool may refer to repealed legislation. The NHVR is currently working on an updated version in accordance with the latest amendments.
