The SEVS Register provides information about eligibility of motor vehicles for entry onto the register. You can also download an application form from here.
The RAWS Secure Web Site allows participants to view the progress of applications they have lodged and any associated discussion items.
The RAWS allows for the importation and supply of used specialist or enthusiast vehicles to the market in Australia. Under this scheme, only a Registered Automotive Workshop can import a used vehicle into Australia.
This link will provide you with access to all the approved RAWS vehicles if you have the VIN and Plate Number.
RVCS allows vehicle manufacturers to electronically certify vehicles they supply to the Australian market meet prescribed safety standards from the Australian Design Rules (ADRs). The system allows lodgement of test data using electronic forms software.
The department provides an online application system allowing vehicle importers to submit applications through their own personalised portal. Importers can register for the portal on the department website.
