RVSA Guidance Material Consultation

The Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities will be undertaking detailed consultation with stakeholders on a range of guidance material that will be developed to support the implementation of the Road Vehicle Standards legislation. Further information, including relevant documents, will be posted on this website as they become available.

Vehicle Standards Bulletin 1 (VSB 1)

A revision to the existing VSB 1 Revision 5 is being undertaken with four strategic intentions. These include the need for VSB 1 to reflect the new Road Vehicle Standards legislation; the need for VSB 1 to reflect changes to the Australian Design Rules (ADRs) that have occurred since the last update; to address the underlying causes of consumer complaints related to light trailers; and to improve compliance with ADRs by light trailer manufacturers.

A VSB 1 Focus Group meeting was held on 14 March 2019 in Melbourne. Approximately 50 industry and regulatory stakeholders were invited to attend, with 25 of these attending the meeting. Documents related to this meeting, including minutes of the meeting, are available below.
