Compliance & Enforcement

The safe and appropriate operation of a heavy vehicle on WA roads is the responsibility of all parts of the transport chain. It's expected that all parties within this chain conduct themselves appropriately and in compliance with the law.

Through education, on-road enforcement and collaboration with federal, state and local governments, we aim to build an environment of voluntary compliance as the industry standard.

The following educational and reference material is provided to assist you:

Chain of Responsibility

Anyone who has control in the transport chain can be held legally accountable if they cause or contribute to road safety breaches.

Incident reporting

All on-road incidents involving a RAV operating under a Permit or Order, must be reported to us within 48 hours of the incident occurring.
