The Registered Automotive Workshop Scheme (RAWS) allows for the importation and supply of used specialist or enthusiast vehicles to the market in Australia. Under this scheme only a RAW can import a used vehicle into Australia.
A RAW is an accredited workshop that is especially licensed to fit Used Import Plates to complied imported used vehicles. A RAW must comply with all Federal, State and Territory and Local Laws. RAWS arrangements do not apply for vehicles manufactured before 1 January 1989 or vehicles that are to be imported under the Personal Import Scheme.
For these vehicles please refer to Vehicle Safety Standards Bulletin 10 (VSB10) Importing Vehicles into Australia.
