Vehicle industry suppliers and operators have long held concerns about the lack of a verifiable quality standard or measure for heavy vehicle replacement (spare) parts in Australia. To address this concern the NHVR is funding ARTSA to develop a guide for heavy vehicle replacement spare parts focusing as a first stage on safety-critical and compliance-critical parts.
The guide will be developed as a collaborative document and will mirror the approach adopted when producing the Guide to Braking and Stability Performance for Heavy Vehicles, where six industry groups as well as the NHVR and the Federal Department lent their support to this document
