Chain of responsibility
Changes to the Chain of Responsibility (COR) laws are coming into effect on 1 October 2018. The COR laws are set by the government to make sure everyone in the supply chain shares responsibility for ensuring breaches of the Heavy Vehicle National Law do not occur.
Growers have different responsibilities depending on whether you own and operate a heavy vehicle or contract transport services to another operator.
The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has the following information available to learn about the changes:
- National Heavy Vehicle Regulator website
- A fact sheet
- A 3.30 minute video on YouTube which clarifies some of the questions growers may have in relation to the new laws
- An additional Frequently Asked Questions produced by NHVR explaining grower requirements
- An online gap assessment which can help you work out which part of the supply chain you are and what your responsibilities will be
