Relevantly, it does not include a subcategory of vehicle category except where expressly stated in, or impliedly required by, road vehicle legislation.

This instrument is ‘road vehicle legislation’ for the purposes of paragraph (g) of the definition of that term in section 5 of the Rules. Sections 10 and 12 of this instrument refer to various subcategories of vehicle.

6  Definition of entry pathway sub-category

             (1)  Entry pathway sub-category means the sub-category set out in this section that applies to the vehicle.

Note:          The entry pathway sub-category indicates the basis on which the type approval or concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted. 

Entry-pathway subcategories—type approval pathway

             (2)  Subsection (3) or (4) does not apply to a vehicle if subsection (5) applies to the vehicle.

             (3)  The type approval—standard sub-category applies to a vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the type approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the road vehicle type approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the matter in:

                              (i)  subparagraph 19(1)(a)(i) of the Rules; or

                             (ii)  paragraph 19(3)(a) and subparagraph 19(3)(b)(i) of the Rules.

Note:          Subparagraph 19(1)(a)(i) of the Rules allows the Secretary to grant a type approval in respect of a type of vehicle where he or she is satisfied (among other things) that the type of vehicle complies with the applicable national road vehicle standards, as in force at the time the Secretary decides the application.

                   Paragraph 19(3)(a) and subparagraph 19(3)(b)(i) of the Rules allow the Secretary to grant a type approval in respect of a type of vehicle where he or she is satisfied that (among other things) the type of vehicle substantially complies with the applicable national road vehicle standards as in force at the time the Secretary decides the application, and the non-compliance is only in minor and inconsequential respects.

             (4)  The type approval—non-standard sub-category applies to a vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the type approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the road vehicle type approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the matter in paragraph 19(3)(a) and subparagraph 19(3)(b)(ii) of the Rules.

Note:          Paragraph 19(3)(a) and subparagraph 19(3)(b)(ii) of the Rules allow the Secretary to grant a type approval in respect of a type of vehicle where he or she is satisfied that (among other things) the type of vehicle substantially complies with the applicable national road vehicle standards, as in force at the time the Secretary decides the application, and the vehicle complies with those standards to an extent that makes it suitable for use on a public road in Australia.

             (5)  The type approval—second stage of manufacture sub-category applies to a vehicle (the SSM vehicle) where:

                     (a)  a vehicle (the base vehicle) was entered on the RAV via the type approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the base vehicle underwent second stage of manufacture in accordance with the supporting information for the applicable road vehicle type approval before being provided to a consumer for the first time in Australia; and

                     (c)  the vehicle, following the second stage of manufacture (the SSM vehicle), is to be entered on the RAV via the type approval pathway.

Entry-pathway subcategories—concessional RAV entry approval pathway

             (6)  The RAWs concessional—Specialist and Enthusiast Vehicle sub-category applies to a road vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the concessional RAV entry approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the vehicle is covered by an entry on the SEVs Register; and

                     (c)  the concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the eligibility criterion in section 37 of the Rules.

Note:          The eligibility criterion in section 37 of the Rules, in broad terms, applies to vehicles that must be modified or manufactured by the holder of a RAW approval before they can be entered on the RAV. A vehicle covered by an entry on the SEVs Register is capable of satisfying this criterion (see subparagraph 37(a)(i) of the Rules).

             (7)  The RAWs concessional—used motorcycle full compliance sub-category applies to a road vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the concessional RAV entry approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the vehicle is a used two-wheeled vehicle or a used three-wheeled vehicle; and

                     (c)  the concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the eligibility criterion in section 37 of the Rules.

Note:          The eligibility criterion in section 37 of the Rules, in broad terms, applies to vehicles that must be modified or manufactured by the holder of a RAW approval before they can be entered on the RAV. A used two-wheeled vehicle or a used three-wheeled vehicle is capable of satisfying this criterion (see subparagraph 37(a)(ii) of the Rules).

             (8)  The RAWs concessional—second stage of manufacture sub-category applies to a road vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the concessional RAV entry approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the vehicle is a road vehicle that:

                              (i)  is entered on the RAV via the type approval pathway; and

                             (ii)  has not been provided to a consumer for the first time in Australia; and

                            (iii)  has been, is currently undergoing or will be subject to second stage of manufacture before being so provided; and

                     (c)  the concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the eligibility criterion in section 37 of the Rules.

Note:          The eligibility criterion in section 37 of the Rules, in broad terms, applies to vehicles that must be modified or manufactured by the holder of a RAW approval before they can be entered on the RAV. Certain type-approved road vehicles that are subject to second stage of manufacture are capable of satisfying this criterion (see subparagraph 37(a)(iii) of the Rules).

             (9)  The concessional—trailers sub-category applies to a road vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the concessional RAV entry approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the eligibility criterion in section 40 of the Rules.

Note:          Section 40 of the Rules sets out the eligibility criterion under which a trailer may obtain a concessional RAV entry approval.

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the concessional RAV entry approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the eligibility criterion in section 36 of the Rules.

Note:          The eligibility criterion in section 36 of the Rules applies to older vehicles. An older vehicle is a vehicle that has a relevant build date that is at least 25 years before the date of the person’s application for a concessional RAV entry approval, and falls within one of the vehicle categories set out in paragraph 36(1)(a) of the Rules. 

           (11)  The concessional—special purpose vehicle sub-category applies to a road vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the concessional RAV entry approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the eligibility criterion in section 38 of the Rules.

Note:          The eligibility criterion in section 38 of the Rules applies, in broad terms, to a vehicle that could not operate for the purpose for which it was designed if it fully complied with the applicable national road vehicle standards in force at the relevant time, but nonetheless complies with those standards to an extent that makes it suitable for use on a public road in Australia.

           (12)  The concessional—personal effects sub-category applies to a road vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the concessional RAV entry approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the eligibility criterion in section 39 of the Rules.

Note:          The eligibility criterion in section 39 of the Rules applies, in broad terms, to a vehicle that a person becomes the owner of while living outside Australia on a permanent basis. Where the person arrives in Australia with the intention of living there indefinitely (in addition to meeting other requirements), they may seek to import the vehicle as part of their personal effects.

           (13)  The concessional—road vehicle suitable for entry on RAV sub-category applies to a road vehicle if:

                     (a)  the vehicle is to be entered on the RAV via the concessional RAV entry approval pathway; and

                     (b)  the concessional RAV entry approval that applies to the vehicle was granted on the basis of the eligibility criterion in section 41 of the Rules.
