You will require this accreditation if you intend to operate a heavy vehicle. There are four types of heavy vehicle accreditation:
- 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
- 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 responsible agency for more information regarding eligibility requirements.
