Following the release of the NTC’s discussion paper calling for feedback on 4 regulatory options for the integration of automated vehicles into operations, the ATA is urging governments to limit the regulatory burdens on companies.
The 4 regulatory options are 1. self certification, 2. pre-market approval, 3. accreditation or 4. the current approach.
Transport ministers requested that the NTC examine what level of regulation is needed to safely adopt automated vehicles into operations both now and in the coming years.
According to the NTC, state governments are beginning to remove legislative barriers to more automated road vehicles. The ATA’s submission to the NTC insists that governments do no impose ” additional regulatory burdens on businesses” that want to integrate automated vehicles into the operations.
The ATA also believes that accreditation would be too complex and costly for smaller businesses and is ultimately unnecessary. For more visit: https://www.fullyloaded.com.au/industry-news/1708/call-to-limit-regulatory-burden-on-automated-vehicles
