The National Compliance Information System (NCIS) is a national set of heavy vehicle-related compliance and monitoring data captured using state and territory cameras and monitoring systems. It contains nation-wide information about Australia’s heavy vehicles, their movements, drivers and operators, providing a truly national picture of the heavy vehicle fleet.
The NCIS facilitates data-sharing across state and territory borders, allowing the NHVR and partner agencies to deliver a nationally coordinated approach to targeting unsafe and non-compliant behaviours.
The benefits of the NCIS include:
- better targeting of unsafe practices
- fewer delays and increased productivity for compliant operators
- improved road safety for all road users.
The NCIS program commenced in 2015 and is co-funded by the Commonwealth Government through NHVR’s Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative for additional cameras and data sharing.
National Safety Camera Network
The NCIS is supported by the National Safety Camera Network, a national network of cameras used to collect heavy vehicle compliance and monitoring data that feeds into the NCIS.
The installation program began in 2017, with cameras installed in 7 sites in Victoria, 3 in Queensland and a new one recently operational in ACT.
An additional 50 camera sites have been identified as priority locations across all states and territories, with further installations planned for South Australia, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia in 2019.
Once installation at all sites is complete, the integrated camera network will provide complete national visibility of Australia’s heavy vehicle activities.
