Scope of this legislative Instrument
The Queensland Code of Practice: Light motor vehicles contains detailed standards for a wide range complex modifications commonly performed on light vehicles. Only approved persons, with the appropriate Code accreditation, or authorised officers can approve modifications that comply with the code.
The code is based on accepted vehicle engineering practices and the requirements of the Australian Design Rules for Motor Vehicle Safety. It is intended to supplement the recommendations of the original vehicle manufacturer in relation to vehicle modification techniques or standards. It is important to note that the Australian Design Rules and the original manufacturers modification guidelines take precedence over this code.
Please consult the Agency Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
