Public Consultation on the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 and regulations
In May 2013, the then Department of Infrastructure and Transport undertook a public consultation process on the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (the Act) and its Regulations to consider its currency and whether it remains effective and efficient.
A consultation paper was prepared to provide background to the Act and some guiding questions to facilitate consideration of the Act by stakeholders.
Submissions were invited from interested organisations or individuals. Respondents were asked to provide general comment on the objectives, relevancy, effectiveness and impacts of the Act or frame their response in terms of any or all of the questions contained in the consultation paper.
All submissions received are included on the submissions page at this website, excluding any confidential submissions. Submissions closed on Friday 21 June 2013.
The consultation paper was supported by a short series of open workshops to further discuss stakeholder views. These workshops were led by consultant Mr Stephen Payne, who brings wide-ranging knowledge of the motor vehicle industry and experience in conducting major government reviews.
The consultation workshops were held In Sydney (24 May), Melbourne (3 June), Perth (4 June) and Brisbane (12 June).
A public consultation report has been developed from the public submissions. It outlines the considerations raised across the submissions received during the MVSA consultation process.
