This guide explains the role of registered automotive workshops (RAWs) in manufacturing or modifying road vehicles.
Under the Road Vehicle Standards (RVS) legislation, some vehicles cannot be entered on the Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV) through the concessional RAV entry approval pathway until:
- they have been manufactured or modified by a RAW approval holder in accordance with an approved Model Report, and
- verified by an authorised vehicle verifier approval holder.
This guide includes:
- how to apply, the assessment process and time frame for deciding an application
- the types of vehicles a RAW can manufacture or modify if they have access to an approved Model Report
- the determinations relating to the standards applying to road vehicles manufactured or modified according to a Model Report
- a self-assessment checklist to help you complete your application is also in the guide.
