Our Involvement

Educating Industry

In collaboration with each of our member State Associations, Caravan Industry Association of Australia will continue holding Education Sessions for their members regarding the RVSA throughout 2021.  These sessions are designed to educate industry businesses on the RVSA and how the changes will affect their operations.

Government Involvement

Caravan Industry Association of Australia has actively lobbied for changes to the Motor Vehicle Standards Act (MVSA) for over five years before the federal parliament finally passed the new Road Vehicle Standards Act (RVSA).

Caravan Industry Association of Australia remains committed to consumer safety and manufacturing compliance and is heavily involved in the RVSA roll-out, having actively participated in the consultation groups formed by the federal government throughout 2018 and 2019 to provide feedback on all aspects of the proposed methods of implementation.  These four consultation groups were:

  1. Type Approvals Consultation Group;
  2. Concessional RAV Entry Consultation Group;
  3. RVSA Tools Consultation Group; and
  4. Road Vehicle Recalls Working Group

Caravan Industry Association of Australia continues to work closely with the department throughout 2021 as the RVSA is implemented in stages as per the implementation timeline.
