Almost 6500 National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) members can now track their current nominated vehicles in the mass and maintenance management modules on-line through the NHVR’s website.
NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto today released the NHVAS Active Vehicle Module (AVM) search tool which will allow operators to check the status of a vehicle by entering either the vehicle registration, VIN or chassis number, or accreditation label number.
“This will be a big step forward for the operators of almost 100,000 vehicles nominated under the scheme’s Maintenance Module and 36,000 vehicles nominated under the Mass Module,” Mr Petroccitto said.
“Owners and operators with multiple vehicles can now check the module status and ensure it is current.
“In the past operators have told us that they want to do the right thing and ensure their nominated vehicles are current, but a lack of visibility of a vehicle’s status is often raised as an issue.
“Importantly those responsible for safety in other heavy vehicle supply chain roles such as weighbridge operators, consignees and consignors can also check that a vehicle’s accreditation nomination is current.
“With Chain of Responsibility laws coming in mid 2018, this is another tool to support the industry to better apply risk management processes to focus on safety outcomes.”
Operators accredited under the scheme can now log on to www.nhvr.gov.au/avm-search to check their NHVAS nominated vehicle status.
The NHVAS provides flexibility in managing fatigue and concessions for mass and maintenance for operators that have robust and compliant management systems.
There are 6481 heavy vehicle operators in NHVAS with 97,537 vehicles nominated in maintenance and 35,173 in mass.
The NHVAS has been operating since 1999 and was brought under the NHVR in 2014. Heavy vehicle operators can apply for accreditation under Mass, Maintenance, Basic Fatigue Management or Advanced Fatigue Management modules.
