The NHVR has listened to operators and increased the NHVAS audit reminder period

Operators accredited under the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) will be given three months advanced notice of when audits are due.

National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) CEO Sal Petroccitto says the NHVR has listened to operators and increased the NHVAS audit reminder period from one month to three months ahead of the due date.

"Many accredited operators told us that a one-month advance reminder just wasn’t long enough," he says.

"The NHVR has increased this to help operators meet their requirements.

"The earlier reminder will help operators to book and complete their audits on time."

Operators can submit the compliance audit and existing accreditation holder’s application to the NHVR as early as six months before their accreditation expires.

Operators must lodge at least one month before their expiry date.

"Not all operators were sent reminders prior to the NHVR’s administration of the scheme— now everyone receives a reminder," says Petroccitto.

 "We recommend that operators contact their auditors well ahead of the deadline, because NHVAS is growing strongly."

An NHVAS auditor cannot conduct more than two consecutive audits on each of the NHVAS modules for mass, maintenance, or fatigue.
