CHAIN OF RESPONSIBILITY (CoR)

The Heavy Vehicle Chain of Responsibility (CoR) Legislation requires (but is not limited to) Load Restraint, Mass Management, Load Dimension, Speed and Fatigue Management compliance.

For guidance material regarding Load Restraint, please see links below:

The NTC completed a major review of the Load Restraint Guide Second Edition 2004 in January 2018 to ensure it was clear, user-friendly and based on the best available evidence on how to safely restrain and transport the majority of loads carried by heavy vehicles in Australia. The Load Restraint Guide 2018 was formally approved by the Transport and Infrastructure Council on 10 November 2017.

The Load Restraint Guide 2018 provides drivers, owners, operators, freight consigners, vehicle manufacturers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers with the basic safety principles that should be followed when designing a load restraint system to ensure the safe and efficient transportation of loads.
