4              Guidelines for Minister — applications for approval to place used import plate

                For subsection 13D (3) of the Act, the guidelines set out in Schedule 1 apply to the making of a decision by the Minister, under subsection 13D (1) of the Act, in respect of an application for approval to place a used import plate on a used imported vehicle.


Schedule 1        Guidelines

(section 4)

Part 1          General

1              Compliance with Vehicle Standards Bulletin No. 4

         (1)   Vehicles originally built in left-hand-drive configuration must be converted to right-hand-drive configuration to comply with requirements in force for new vehicles.

         (2)   Conversion must be performed in accordance with Vehicle Standards Bulletin No. 4, Steering Conversions for Left Hand Drive Vehicles.

2              Compliance with roadworthiness requirements

                Vehicles must comply with all State and Territory roadworthiness requirements (other than the requirement that the used import plate be fitted).

Part 2          Compliance with ADR specifications

3              Unrestricted volume two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles

         (1)   A registered automotive workshop may supply used imported two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles in unrestricted volume if those vehicles comply with all ADR specifications in force for new vehicles of that type at the date on which the vehicles are fitted with a used import plate.

         (2)   The workshop must provide to the Minister, on request, full evidence of compliance with the ADR specifications that apply to the certification of full volume new two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles.

Note 1   Alternative standards that are not specified in the relevant ADR specifications are not acceptable for the purpose of demonstrating ADR compliance for the supply of used imported two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles in unrestricted volume.

Note 2   Unrestricted volume two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles are not required to be listed on the Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles.

4              Restricted volume two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles

                Used imported two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles that are supplied in restricted volume must:

                (a)    be listed on the Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles; and

               (b)    meet the evidence testing and inspection requirements set out in these Guidelines, for the ADRs in force when the vehicle was manufactured.

5              Motorhomes and certain trucks and buses

         (1)   A used imported truck with a Gross Vehicle Mass exceeding 12.0 tonnes (NC category vehicles) and a used imported bus with more than 12 seating positions, as originally supplied for use in transport, must:

                (a)    be listed on the Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles; and

               (b)    comply with the ADR specifications in force for new vehicles at the date the vehicle is fitted with a used import plate; and

                (c)    meet the evidence, testing and inspection requirements set out in these Guidelines.

         (2)   A used imported vehicle that is to be used for building a motorhome must be listed on the Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles.

         (3)   A motorhome built from a used imported vehicle must comply with Administrator’s Circular 0-4-12.

6              Other vehicles

                All used imported vehicles, other than unrestricted volume two-wheeled and three-wheeled vehicles, motorhomes and those trucks and buses specified in clause 5, must:

                (a)    be listed on the Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles; and

               (b)    meet testing and inspection requirements set out in these Guidelines, for the ADR specifications in force when the vehicle was manufactured; and

                (c)    meet the evidence, testing and inspection requirements set out in these Guidelines.

Part 3          Evidence of compliance with ADR specifications

7              General

         (1)   Used imported vehicles must be approved on a vehicle by vehicle basis, and evidence of compliance of a sample vehicle will not be considered adequate evidence of compliance of other similar vehicles.

         (2)   Evidence of compliance with requirements in these Guidelines has two aspects:

                (a)    to show capability of compliance for a sample vehicle and use this evidence as a base for other similarly designed and constructed vehicles, ignoring the differences between the vehicles in regard to deterioration with time and use; and

               (b)    to enable registered automotive workshops to address variability in deterioration with time and use, and to inspect, test or otherwise provide acceptable evidence that the individual vehicles have not deteriorated to an unacceptable level and that they are operating as required.

8              The sample vehicle

         (1)   The sample vehicle is the first vehicle of a particular make and model for which an application under the Motor Vehicle Standards Regulations 1989 is made by a registered automotive workshop to affix a used import plate.

         (2)   The information required by the workshop for a sample vehicle before that make and model is added to the schedule of approved vehicles includes:

                (a)    evidence to confirm the vehicle category, date of first supply to the market, and compliance with requirements set out in these Guidelines; and

               (b)    a completed Road Vehicle Descriptor (RVD); and

                (c)    evidence that the make and model of the sample vehicle is on the Register of Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicles; and

               (d)    detailed evidence of compliance with these Guidelines to support the information submitted to the Minister for each applicable ADR specification.

         (3)   Where full evidence of compliance is used as a method of demonstrating compliance with an ADR, a copy of the relevant Summary of Evidence (SE) form and Fleet Selection (FS) form must form part of the evidence.

Note   The acceptable methods for demonstrating compliance to these Guidelines are set out in Part 7 of this Schedule.

         (4)   Examples of documents that would be acceptable for paragraph (2) (a) are:

                (a)    for vehicles imported from Japan ¾ vehicle identification number (VIN) decodes and vehicle de-registration certificates, or Completion Inspection Certificates from Japan; or

               (b)    for vehicles imported from the United States of America ¾ Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) certification plate and original documentation that confirms export of the vehicle from the USA and verifies the model year, the date on which the vehicle was built, and country of first use; or

                (c)    for vehicles imported from any country ¾ a certificate of compliance that identifies, for each ADR specification, the original standard to which a vehicle was built, and with a signature on the licensee letterhead by the delegate of the licensee authorising the full volume approval of vehicles of the same make.

9              Each vehicle (including the sample vehicle)

         (1)   Each vehicle, for which an application is made to place a used import plate, must conform with information held by the registered automotive workshop that demonstrates that the sample vehicle complies with these Guidelines.

         (2)   One sample vehicle may be selected by a registered automotive workshop for testing to represent the performance of other sample vehicles.

         (3)   A worst-case vehicle (that is, a vehicle that most differs from the sample vehicle in respect of requirements set out in these Guidelines or the ADR specifications) must be treated as another sample vehicle for that make and model.

Part 4          Requirements to address vehicle deterioration

10            Requirements

         (1)   A range of requirements apply to address the deterioration of used imported vehicles.

         (2)   Specific requirements for each vehicle (under the various acceptable methods of demonstrating compliance for each ADR specification) are set out in Part 7 of this Schedule.

        (3)   It is a core requirement that all ADR related components must be undamaged and operating as required by the relevant ADRs.

         (4)   The requirements set out in Part 7 for applicable ADRs also include the following:

                (a)    specific components that are subject to wear must be replaced;

               (b)    certain components must be shown to be within their specifications or must be replaced;

                (c)    a test on each vehicle must be performed, and the result must be within the sample vehicle test result;

               (d)    additional testing must be performed if the test result is not within the sample vehicle test result;

                (e)    a sample may be accepted as representative of vehicles that are no more than 1 year older than the sample vehicle;

                (f)    replacement components must be new in all cases and comply with the specifications of the sample vehicle.

Part 5          Compliance with Guidelines

11            Evidence of compliance

         (1)   Compliance with these Guidelines may be demonstrated by different methods depending on the ADR concerned.

         (2)   Part 6 summarises the alternative methods that are acceptable for demonstrating compliance with ADR specifications.

         (3)   Part 7 identifies, for each ADR, the evidence required for a sample vehicle and for each vehicle under each acceptable method of demonstrating compliance with these Guidelines.

Explanation of terms

 

1

E Mark

Complete ‘E mark’ on each vehicle or component as applicable confirming compliance with the applicable Economic Commission of Europe (ECE) Regulation (where the vehicle has not been modified from its ‘E Mark’ specification).

2

CRN

Use of a component for which a Component Reference Number has been issued by the Administrator for ADR compliance evidence, and installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and conditions of the CRN.

3

Full Volume Vehicle

The use of a component or system shown to be identical to that on a vehicle certified in full volume in Australia in the same vehicle category, identifying the vehicle category, make, model and identification plate approval number of that vehicle, and the component or system, provided that it is in an acceptable condition and that ADR related installation and operational requirements are shown to be met.  Part numbers in spare parts catalogues would be suitable for identification purposes.

4

Japanese origin

Information to confirm that the component or system is of the same specification as those on the vehicle when originally supplied to the Japanese market.  Part numbers in spare parts catalogues would be suitable for this purpose.

5

USA origin

Information to confirm that the component or system is of the same specification as those on the vehicle when originally supplied to the USA market.  Part numbers in spare parts catalogues would be suitable for this purpose.

6

Analysis

To demonstrate compliance with the strength requirements of the ADR, physical observations and measurements of the main parts of each component or assembly, and a comprehensive stress analysis must be provided. The calculations must have proper regard to the interaction and combination of shear and bending forces.  Overly simplistic assumptions about the behaviour of sheet metal must be avoided where thin metal sections are involved in combination with high local stresses.  To demonstrate compliance with location or visibility requirements of the ADR, physical observations, measurements and engineering drawings in sufficient detail must be provided, with the relevant information clearly presented.  The applicable labelling, marking and operational requirements of the ADR must be recognised for confirmation of compliance on a vehicle by vehicle basis.

7

Other specified

As specified under individual acceptable evidence requirements.

8

ADR evidence

Complete evidence for all the requirements of the ADR for a sample vehicle.

Specific evidence

For a sample vehicle:

1.    Seatbelt assemblies must be provided for the seating positions and anchorages as required in ADRs 5/...  Where a lap-sash belt is specified, separate lap and sash belts are not acceptable.

2.    For vehicle categories MA, MB, MC, NA, NB1 and NB2:

a)     the driver’s seatbelt assembly must have a dual sensitive emergency locking retractor (ELR not ALALR *) (Clause 5.3.1.1);

* If the original vehicle was a left hand drive vehicle and had an Automatic Length Adjusting and Locking Retractor (ALALR) in the front outboard passenger seat, then either its ALALR function must be disabled and the retractor shown to operate satisfactorily as an ELR, or a new ADR 4/.. complying ELR seatbelt must be fitted;
