Release of information under a subpoena

Subpoenas should be served on the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator at the following address:

The Proper Officer, Executive Director, Regulatory and Legal Services
National Heavy Vehicle Regulator
PO Box 492
Fortitude Valley QLD 4006

The issuance of subpoenas, including without limitation the required method of their service, may be governed by legislation, including the rules of the Court in which the relevant proceedings have been commenced. Issuing parties should make and rely upon their own enquiries and/or obtain legal advice as they see fit in this regard.

Internal NHVR review

In certain circumstances, if you are dissatisfied with an NHVR decision you can ask us to review the decision we have made. You can apply for this through an Internal review.

Once the review decision has been made, we will provide you with a notice outlining the decision and any appeal rights.

Appeals

You can appeal to the relevant appeal body in your jurisdiction regarding a reviewable decision of the NHVR. You can do so up to 28 days after:

  • the NHVR has given you a review notice, or
  • the end of the internal review period, if the internal reviewer does not make a review decision within the period.

For further information see Appeals.
