The NHVAS is a formal process for recognising operators who have robust safety and other management systems in place.
Please note: Changes to the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) came into effect on 1 July 2017. In line with the existing offence relating to displaying a mass management label, the HVNL has been amended to include maintenance management for the same offence.
Accreditation labels for mass and/or maintenance management must be placed so they can be read from the outside of the vehicle and are not wholly or partly obscured, defaced or otherwise not legible. Penalties may apply to both the operator and driver, with a penalty infringement of $324.
