Making the process for minor and straightforward repairs quicker and cheaper for heavy vehicle owners is now part of the industry’s official vehicle inspection manual thanks to collaboration between Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency and the heavy vehicle industry.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is moving to the next phase of sustained engagement with the entry certification and border inspection industry as applications have opened for new appointments and reappointments within the industry.
The NZ Transport Agency says work is well underway to address the findings of the Ministry of Transport’s review of the Agency’s regulatory capability and performance, commissioned by the Minister of Transport in October 2018 and published today.
The NZ Transport Agency is warning parents and caregivers to be vigilant when purchasing child restraints online, as some restraints currently available do not meet approved safety standards and may not keep children safe in event of a crash.
After carefully considering feedback and submissions from industry and the public, the NZ Transport Agency has decided to retain its existing conflicts of interest policy for vehicle entry certification, and strengthen its assurance and auditing programme.
