New Regulation for NSW Tanker Trailers

Graham Marshall - Thursday, March 27, 2014

Heavy-goods vehicle tank trailers constructed after July 1st 2014 will need to have an approved roll-over protection device installed to drive on NSW roads.

The new ruling is part of a revision to the Dangerous Good (Road & Rail Transport) Regulation (2009).

The new rules apply to everyone who owns, operates or uses tank trailers for carriage of dangerous goods.

The new rules come int effect following the 2011 Coronial recommendation that heavy-vehicles transporting dangerous goods be fitted with the new technology available to prevent roll-overs.

The requirements relate to all trailers greater than 4.5 tonnes and includes semi-trailers, B-doubles, and dog-trailers.
