National Heavy Vehicle Regulator
If you are dissatisfied with a decision by the NHVR you may seek an Internal Review or make an Appeal against a decision.
An administrative decision by the NHVR, an Authorised Officer or a Road manger may be first internally reviewed, by the NHVR.
Under the HVNL an internal review must be made by a person of equal or higher rank than the original decision-maker. The original decision remains in force during the period of the internal review unless the Dissatisfied person makes a stay application to the Relevant Appeal Body.
The decision must be made and notified to the Dissatisfied person within 28 days.
If, after an internal review is conducted, the Dissatisfied person is still dissatisfied the person may of higher appealed within 28 days of the decision being made. A Dissatisfied Person may apply for an internal review of a decision prior to making an Appeal to QCAT.
An Administrative Review does not stay the original decision.
A decision may only be reviewed within 28 days of the reasons for a decision being received. The NHVR may extend this time under certain circumstances. If you wish the NHVR to consider a late application outside the 28-day time frame, you will need to provide written reasons why the NVR should consider your application.
