May 26, 2010

Information sessions will be held throughout South Australia in June to educate the trucking industry on chain of responsibility and the Intelligent Access Program (IAP).

Representatives from the Department of Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (DTEI) will give an overview of the laws and give attendees the chance to raise their concerns.

Similar to other jurisdictions, South Australian operators are bound by chain of responsibility for loads, fatigue and speed. The laws hold all parties in the supply chain accountable.

The IAP will be introduced on July 1 for higher productivity vehicles. Unlike NSW and Queensland, South Australia will not require operators to enrol in IAP for higher mass limits (HML) access.

"You need to know and understand how these laws affect your business and what improvements you need to make in managing heavy vehicles," a notice from the DTEI says.

Sessions will begin from June 7 and run until June 25, with the DTEI visiting regions such as Ceduna, Port Lincoln, Berri, Mount Gambier and Regency Park.

Those interested in attending need to register online or call the department on 1300 334 640.
