Personal contact information is also collected to maintain communication with applicants and approval holders.
The department only uses and/or discloses personal information for the purposes for which it was collected—the primary purpose (unless an individual has consented to another use).
Under certain limited circumstances, the department may use and/or disclose personal information for a different purpose—a secondary purpose—for example, to law enforcement agencies under subpoena, or to support an enforcement related activity where the use or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary.
Please contact the department's Privacy Officer for more information.
As an applicant or approval holder, you may need to upload additional information or documents when applying for an approval, or when the department requests further information.
All information and documentation provided will be considered when deciding whether to grant, or refuse to grant, an approval.
Any information that is, or could be, commercially sensitive will be treated as commercial-in-confidence at all times. Any further disclosure—beyond any persons or organisations whose access to your information you have authorised through an authority to act—will not be made without your consent unless it is required by law.
Under the RVS legislation some information, including name and contact details of approval holders, must be published on the department's website. Publication requirements are set out in the Road Vehicle Standards Rules 2019.
