The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has released Australia’s first gazette Notice for Performance Based Standards (PBS) truck and dog combinations.
PBS combinations are modern vehicles designed to perform tasks more productively, safely and sustainably and are tested to rigorous safety standards.
The Notice will replace the need for state based permits for heavy vehicle combinations comprising of a three or four-axle truck, towing a three, four or five-axle dog trailer.
Media release from Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Darren Chester
