Adding a vehicle imported under the MVSA to the Register of Approved Vehicles

This Guidance note only applies to vehicles imported by an identification plate approval (IPA) holder under a blanket approval granted under section 17 the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (MVSA):

  • standard road vehicles (subsection 10A(1) of the MVSA), or
  • minor or inconsequential non-standard road vehicles (subsection 10A(2) of the MVSA).

It outlines the RVS requirements for vehicle type approval holders with vehicle stock already manufactured and/or imported under their IPA.
