PBS Review Panel

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is responsible for operating the PBS Review Panel (PRP).

The PRP determines whether or not a vehicle meets the performance-based standards approved by the Transport and Infrastructure Council and, if necessary, the national conditions under which a vehicle is to operate to ensure that it continues to comply with those standards once it is on the road.

The PRP comprises 11 members, including one representative from the Commonweath and each state and territory. It is led by an independent Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson. A set of approved business rules, performance standards, vehicle assessment rules and other governing documents ensure the panel operates in a transparent and nationally-consistent manner.

PBS vehicle assessors and certifiers are appointed by the NHVR in consultation with the PRP.
