EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

 

Select Legislative Instrument 2006 No. 38

 

Issued by the Authority of the Minister for Transport and Regional Services

 

National Transport Commission Act 2003

 

Section 52 of the National Transport Commission Act 2003 (the Act) provides that the Governor-General may make regulations, not inconsistent with the Act, prescribing all matters required or permitted by the Act to be prescribed or necessary or convenient to be prescribed for carrying out or giving effect to the Act.

 

The purpose of the package of regulations listed at Attachment A is to set out model legislation and road transport legislation, for the purposes of the Act and in accordance with an Intergovernmental Agreement (the IGA).

 

Paragraph 3(a) of the Act establishes the National Transport Commission (the NTC) as an independent statutory body with ongoing responsibility for developing, monitoring and maintaining uniform or nationally consistent regulatory and operational reforms relating to road, rail and intermodal transport.  The NTC replaces the former National Road Transport Commission (the former NRTC) which previously had responsibility for progressing road transport regulatory reforms.  The NTC is directly accountable to Commonwealth, State and Territory Ministers through the Australian Transport Council (the ATC), as was the former NRTC.

 

Subparagraph 3(b)(ii) of the Act provides that the purpose of the Act is to provide a mechanism for making regulations setting out road transport legislation, regulations and other instruments (whether enacted or in model form) that were developed by the former NRTC and agreed by the ATC.  Section 7 of the Act provides the mechanism, with subsection 7(1) specifying that the regulations may set out model legislation and road transport legislation.  Clause 14 of the IGA requires the Commonwealth to submit road transport legislation for inclusion in schedules to regulations under the Act.  The Regulations implement this commitment.

 

The provisions of the Act are supported by the IGA, which serves to formalise the cooperative arrangements between the Commonwealth, States and Territories and define the roles and responsibilities of the NTC, ATC and the jurisdictions.

 

The Regulations provide a single reference point for the road transport legislation.  The States and Territories, and the Commonwealth where appropriate, may now either reference or enact the substance of the model legislation in their own law thereby establishing and maintaining a nationally agreed regulatory framework.  This mechanism also facilitates future amendments to the package of regulations as they are developed by the NTC and agreed by the ATC.

 

Each of the Regulations sets out in a schedule an item of the road transport legislation previously developed by the former NRTC and which, in consultation with the jurisdictions, and as required by Clause 14 of the IGA, has been identified for this purpose and put in an appropriate form by the NTC:

 

  • Several of the Regulations set out road transport legislation (including amendments) which has been enacted into template law.  These include Acts and Regulations made by the Commonwealth for the Australian Capital Territory (the ACT), in particular covering the areas of road transport charges, heavy vehicles registration, vehicle operations and transport of dangerous goods by road and rail; and

 

  •  The balance of the Regulations set out road transport legislation in model form, or draft legislation, including amendments, covering areas of heavy vehicle registration, vehicle operations, driver licensing and compliance and enforcement.

 

In future the Regulations will be the only reference point for implementation by all jurisdictions, irrespective of the form the road transport legislation had previously taken.

 

Jurisdictions have largely implemented the road transport legislation and where necessary will amend their law both to refer to the Regulations.  They will also establish appropriate mechanisms for implementing future amendments to the Regulations.  The Commonwealth, in agreement with the ACT and other relevant parties, will then be able to seek the repeal as required by the IGA, of any road transport legislation that has been enacted by the Commonwealth on behalf of the ACT.

 

Section 9 of the Act requires the Commission to consult, where it is appropriate and practicable to do so, with governments and government bodies, industry representatives, representatives of people who live in regional or remote areas of Australia and other interested people, bodies and organisations.  As these particular regulations were made to meet the obligations set out in the IGA and the schedules set out reforms previously developed and agreed by ATC and already largely implemented by jurisdictions, the NTC established a reference group made up of representatives from the Transport Agencies of each jurisdiction.

 

The reference group confirmed the list of agreed reforms identified as meeting the definition of road transport legislation to be set out in schedules, and commented on the form and content of the draft regulations.  The group also discussed implications for jurisdictions and the process for future reforms developed by the NTC to be set out in further regulations.

 

Comments made were considered and taken into account by the NTC.  Transport Agency Chief Executives were provided with copies of the draft regulations.  The main focus has been to ensure that the regulations clearly set out the agreed reforms and also facilitate the making of future amendments to those reforms.

 

Details of each of the Regulations are set out in Attachment B.

 

Paragraph 7(2)(a) of the Act provides that the road transport legislation scheduled to the Regulations does not have the force of law.  The schedules serve only as a repository for nationally agreed reforms which are then implemented by jurisdictions.

 

Item 44 of the table to subsection 44(2) of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 and item 7 of Schedule 2 to the Legislative Instruments Regulations 2004 provide that the Regulations are not subject to disallowance.  In addition, item 51 of the table in subsection 54(2) of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 and item 4 of Schedule 3 to the Legislative Instruments Regulations 2004 operate to provide that the Regulations are not subject to sunsetting.

The Act specifies no conditions to be satisfied before the power to make the Regulations was exercised.

 

The Regulations are legislative instruments for the purposes of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.

 

Each of the Regulations commenced on the day after it was registered.
