NSW OSOM permits handed to NHVR

Current NSW permits issued remain valid until expiry date

NSW OSOM permits handed to NHVR
NSW Class 1 OSOM is an NHVR matter now


The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is now processing all Class 1 Oversize and Overmass (OSOM) permit applications for New South Wales. 

The NHVR had been working with Transport for NSW (TfNSW), NSW local councils and the heavy vehicle industry recently to finalise the transfer of OSOM permit processing.

"All heavy vehicle operators requiring an access permit to travel in NSW now have a single point of contact through the NHVR Portal on the entire route, including state, territory and local council roads," NHVR CEO Sal Petroccitto says.

TfNSW advises that current heavy vehicle permits issued in NSW will remain valid until the permit’s expiry date, unless amended or renewed by the NHVR.

"The return of delegation is a critical step in progressing the efficient management of access in NSW by providing a centrally managed process through the online NHVR Portal," TfNSW executive director Susie Mackay says.

The NHVR advises operators to also check out the recently released Multi-State Class 1 Load Carrying Vehicles Dimension and Mass Exemption notices which increased mass for the OSOM network in NSW up to 115 tonnes and the width has been increased up to five metres.

"Before submitting your application, please check you actually require a permit, as you may be able to operate under a notice or approved network," Petroccitto says.
