The NHVR will begin using branded security seals from January 4, 2022 to indicate that a heavy vehicle’s load is sealed and inspected.
The seals will be used by NHVR officers in South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and the ACT.
According to NHVR director Southern Region (operations) Paul Simionato, the seals will add an additional level of assurance for operators and drivers, together with those taking final delivery of loads.
“The seals are another example of the NHVR delivering increased levels of safety and security across industry,” Simionato said.
“On an occasion where an officer inspects a load, we will re-seal the load with an NHVR security seal, signalling that the load has been inspected and hasn’t been tampered with when it arrives at its final destination.”
