NHVR thanks outgoing HVIA CEO


The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator has thanked outgoing Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia (HVIA) CEO Brett Wright for his contribution to the Australian heavy vehicle industry.

NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto said Brett's advocacy on behalf of HVIA members had led to significant progress for heavy vehicle manufacturers and suppliers.

"Brett has been a big supporter of heavy vehicle reform both in Queensland and more recently at the national level," Mr Petroccitto said.

"He has been a contributor to many of our forums and I've valued his input on many important issues.

"We have recently worked closely with Brett and his team on significant initiatives for the heavy vehicle industry, including the revised Vehicle Standards Bulletin 6: National Code of Practice for Heavy Vehicle Modifications (VSB6) and Performance Based Standards, just to a mention a few."

Mr Petroccitto said the NHVR looked forward to working with the incoming CEO to continue to deliver programs that boost safety for all road users and productivity for the heavy vehicle industry.
