Western Australian Heavy Vehicle Accreditation is mandatory for individuals and organisations that require a permit or notice to perform any transport task as part of a commercial business or for profit within Western Australia, including interstate operators.
Accreditation involves three modules:
Operators are required to incorporate these into their daily work practices.
There is one optional module -The Mass Management Module - which is only required to be undertaken if an operator wishes to operate within the Accredited Mass Management Scheme (AMMS).
Operator accreditation will improve compliance with Transport laws through a complementary reduction in the on-road enforcement for operators who can demonstrate a high degree of assured compliance.
Major benefits of accreditation will be an enhanced image for the transport industry as one that is safe and responsible, with high professional standards. Further benefits include:
Main Roads WA will approve and manage accreditation in Western Australia. Accreditation does not exempt operators from complying with other requirements of the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Act 2012.
