The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) says it has simplified the process in which operators can view defect notices issued across their entire fleet with the release of a new module within its online portal.
National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) operators will be the first able to experience the NHVR Portal – Compliance Module, which offers a comprehensive overview of defect notices issued to individual vehicles across an entire fleet. It’s designed to enable more effective tracking and earlier management of defects.
“Improving productivity and safety in one of the most important industries in Australia is a key objective of the NHVR and this new portal module helps achieve this through timely and simplified access to important compliance related information” said NHVR chief operations officer Paul Salvati.
“Currently, operators face challenges with timely notifications of defects, which affects fleet management.
“By providing a centralised platform to view the defect history of the entire fleet, operators can identify defect trends, address issues promptly and enhance the maintenance of their fleet.
“This will in turn reduce the number of defects issued to operators and contribute to improved vehicle standards within the heavy vehicle industry.”
NHVAS operators can access the new module through their existing account, while non-NHVAS operators will be offered access to the module by the end of the year.
