In November 2016, the Transport and Infrastructure Council approved amendments to the Heavy Vehicle Charges Model Law. States and territories as well as the Commonwealth are expected to implement the model law in their own legislation and regulations, or under the Heavy Vehicle National Law.

This new model law provides updated schedules of heavy vehicle registration charges which will apply from 1 July 2017. Registration charges have a separate roads and regulatory component.

When implemented, this model law will give effect to the 2017-18 heavy vehicle registration charges and replace earlier charging legislation and amendments.
