NEW SOUTH WALES–Mike Hannon, the A/Chief Executive of the RTA NSW has issued regulations concerning 26 metre B-Doubles which will remain in force until 30 September 2010. To view the RTA NSW document click here.

We manufacture products that comply with page 2, Clause 3.2 and are also plating in accordance with Clause 3.2.1(b) of these regulations. To gain a full understanding of the Plating Requirements, section 3.2.1(b) must be read in conjunction with Page 4 and 5, (Part 5 Definitions). We comply with all of these except points 5 and 12 which refer to Clause 3.3.

Clause 3.2.1(a) applies only where the truck has a front-underrun incorporated into it at the time of manufacture. The requirement in this case is for a Plate to be fitted in the cab. (Only the truck manufacturer can fit a Plate to the cab.  We are authorised only to fit Plates to our own products, and we have no authority to fit or supply Plates for trucks.)

Additionally, where a protrusion, (bull bar or bumper), has been fitted in front of a steel Front Under-run or on a Front Under-run vehicle, an Approved Engineer is the only one with the jurisdiction to plate the protrusion and issue a Vehicle Modification report approving the fitment of a protrusion. This report must be kept in the truck at all times.
