NHVR clarifies rules for NHVAS auditors

NHVR says unnecessary courses are being pushed by people looking to "cash in".


Miscommunication surrounding the requirements to become a National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme (NHVAS) approved auditor has forced the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) to clarify previous reports.

The issue surrounds "incorrect information being sent to auditors to promote paying for qualifications and courses that are not necessary", the NHVR says.

It says the only requirements needed to become an auditor are set out in the NHVAS Business Rules and Standards.

NHVR executive director of productivity and safety Geoff Casey says any material suggesting otherwise is incorrect.

Casey says some organisations are looking to "cash in" on courses that are not necessary.

Changes were made to the guidelines earlier this year in a bid to standardise the way audits were conducted and improve the quality of auditors and audits.

The NHVR says the NHVAS Auditor Registration Information sheet details the process to becoming an auditor.
