Road Vehicle Standards legislation

1 July 2021, the Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 replaced the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989.

Under the Road Vehicle Standards (RVS) legislation, a road vehicle must be entered on the Register of Approved Vehicles (RAV) before it can be provided to another person for road use in Australia for the first time.

The RAV is a publicly searchable online database of vehicles that meet the requirements of the RVS legislation and are approved for provision to the Australian market.

From 1 July 2023, applications through the RAWS system will not be accepted. All new applications must be submitted through ROVER – the IT system that manages all RVS applications and approvals.

For further information, visit the Road Vehicle Standards laws webpage or contact us by completing the online enquiry form.
