Friday Facts: Level the playing field between NHVAS and TruckSafe

05 May 2017

Governments should level the playing field between the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) and TruckSafe, ATA Chair,Geoff Crouch, said.

Geoff has released the ATA submission to the review of the Australian Government’s competitive neutrality policy. 

“The NHVAS enjoys a net competitive advantage as a result of its public ownership,” Mr Crouch said. 

TruckSafe, established prior to the NHVAS and operated by the ATA, is a business and risk management system to improve the safety and professionalism of trucking operators. 

“Businesses accredited under TruckSafe are required to meet five key standards, and are audited by independent, qualified auditors,” Geoff said.
