Accredited Mass Management Scheme (AMMS)

The Accredited Mass Management Scheme (AMMS):

  • Allows for approved tandem drive and tri drive combinations to operate at three (3) concessional mass levels; and
  • Does not prescribe specific loading methods nor restrict commodity types.

Instead, AMMS allows for any product and any proven loading control method to be used.

To be eligible for AMMS, operators must be accredited under the WA Heavy Vehicle Accreditation (WAHVA) Mass Management Module.

Applying for an AMMS Permit

  • 6 or 12 month duration available
  • Cost - $4 per tonne, per month over the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Regulations 2014 limit
  • AMMS Permit Application form

Operating Conditions

AMMS Approved Weighbridge list

An approved weighbridge can be used by transport operators as their sole loading control method when addressing the criteria for the relevant standard in the Mass Management Module.

For a weighbridge to be included on the AMMS Approved Weighbridge List it must be able to determine and record both:

  • the gross mass of the vehicle; and
  • individual axle group weights.

The weighbridge operator must also provide us with current certification or calibration documentation with their AMMS Weighbridge application form (PDF)

An approved AMMS weighbridge will be subject to an audit from time to time to ensure ongoing compliance with the requirements.

Approved concessional RAV networks are available via the RAV Mapping Tool or via the road tables below:



Approved roads (network tables), restricted structures and agricultural pilot zones are provided in one easy-to-use map.

The following templates and examples are provided as a guide for developing your own Mass Management System. While these are comprehensive examples, you should consider the context of your business when developing your system.

Loading Control Guides

These guides are provided as recognised loading control methods that may be used by an operator under AMMS. Each method is outlined in detail to ensure you meed your requirements of the scheme.
