New chain of responsibility (CoR) laws under the National Heavy Vehicle L aw (NHVL) came into effect on 1 October 2018. The CoR changes mean that all parties in the heavy vehicle supply chain that have control or influence over a transport-related activity can be held responsible for breaches of the NHVL and may be legally liable for offences committed.

The parties affected by the CoR changes include:

  • Executive officers
  • Employers
  • Prime contractors
  • Heavy vehicle operators
  • Consignors and consignees
  • Schedulers
  • Loading managers
  • Packers of goods
  • Loaders and unloaders

We can assist your business to understand the impact of the CoR changes, provide training to actively identify, assess and control CoR risks. We can also help you to establish robust management systems to manage CoR risks.
