You will require this accreditation if you intend to operate a heavy vehicle. There are four types of heavy vehicle accreditations:
- Maintenance management accreditation: exempts your vehicle from the requirement to be inspected before renewal of registration;
- Mass management accreditation: allows access to additional mass concessions;
- Basic fatigue management (BFM) accreditation: allows the drivers of the vehicle to operate under BFM hours; and
- Advanced fatigue management (AFM) accreditation: allows the drivers of the vehicle to operate under AFM hours.
Information on BFM and AFM hours are available from the Regulator.
A heavy vehicle is a vehicle with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) or aggregate trailer mass (ATV) of more than 4.5 tonnes.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
