Changes to the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws were implemented on 1 October 2018.

Failure to comply with your obligations will result in prosecution and penalties (up to $300,000 and 2 years' imprisonment for individuals) even where no accident has occurred.

If you:

  • Consign goods;
  • Pack goods;
  • Load goods;
  • Receive goods;
  • Repair, lease or sell heavy vehicles; or,
  • Are corporate entities, Directors, Partners and Managers;

In addition:

  • directors,
  • partners and
  • managers

are accountable for the actions of people under their control.
