TransChoice have comprehensive, affordable and customisable Safety Management Systems available to enable compliance with the regulation.

Chain of Responsibility put in simple terms is the adherence to the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) (PDF, 3.1MB) and ensuring that “no-one in the Supply Chain causes a driver or other members of the supply chain to breach any element of Road Transport Law, specifically the HVNL”.
Chain of Responsibility or Safety Management Systems must cover 6 main elements – mass, dimension, load restraint, speed, fatigue and vehicle standards (maintenance).
There are key elements within the HVNL that must be addressed and met with compliance on a daily level by all Heavy Vehicle operators. We assist operators understand their liabilities under the HVNL and implement procedures and strategies to ensure the highest level of compliance and minimise the operator risk of exposure.
