Reminder of Upcoming Changes to Chain of Responsibility Laws

Good day All,

We would like to provide everyone with a friendly reminder of the upcoming changes to Chain of Responsibility Laws

On 1 October 2018, the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) will be amended to include that every party in the heavy vehicle transport supply chain has a duty to ensure the safety of their transport activities. Put simple, this means that the primary duty represents an obligation to eliminate or minimise potential harm or loss (risk) by doing all that is reasonably practicable to ensure safety. As a party in the supply chain, the best way to do this is to have safety management systems and controls in place, such as business practices, training, procedures and review processes that:

  • identify, assess, evaluate, and control risk
  • manage compliance with speed, fatigue, mass, dimension, loading and vehicle standards requirements through identified best practice
  • involve regular reporting, including to executive officers
  • document or record actions taken to manage safety.

With this, from October 1st, SILA will require all shipments be presented with a valid and correct Container Weight Declaration.

What is a CWD and what does it look like?

A CWD is a written declaration of the weight of a container and its contents. It may be either in hard copy or electronic form, or a placard attached to the freight container. Weight declarations are required to be carried by all drivers and must be able to be produced to an authorized officer, on request.

For further information on the Chain of Responsibility Laws and Container Weight Declarations, please refer to the NHVR website

Kind Regards
