In this edition of the View from Canberra, the secretariat takes a look at the year that was in 2021…and what a year!
It is our lot in life at the BIC to instruct governments on what was, what is and what will be.
The year that was in 2021 saw accelerated activity coming out of the Federal Department of Infrastructure & Transport, the Office of Road Safety, the National Transport Commission and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator. The first half of 2021 saw several door-stopper regulatory impact statements on national law reform and legislative review of heavy vehicle law, heavy vehicle charging, disability access, Euro VI mandate, road safety, vehicle safety and driver safety. To this end, the BIC has submitted detailed reports on a staggering 7 proposed reforms and legislative reviews.
