             (1)  The Vehicle Scope may identify the road vehicles to which a set of Work Instructions applies by setting out alternative specifications in relation to a characteristic of such vehicles.

 Permissible variations resulting from rectification of recalls

             (2)  The Model Report must specify that:

                     (a)  a vehicle manufactured or modified in accordance with the Work Instructions may differ from the final specifications where the difference is the result of rectification action mentioned in section 19; and

                     (b)  a difference of that nature:

                              (i)  does not constitute a variation from the final specifications; and

                             (ii)  does not mean that a modification required by the Model Report has not been carried out correctly.

Note:          ‘Final specifications’ is defined in subsection 4(1).

 

 


 

Division 3Work Instructions

15  Work Instructions—order of implementation

                   The Model Report must require the steps set out in the Work Instructions to be carried out in the following order:

                     (a)  the checks in section 16 (where applicable) must be performed first; and

                     (b)  the recall checks and rectification action in section 19 must be performed before any modifications are made to the vehicle; and

                     (c)  the remaining steps may be performed in any order. 

16  Work Instructions—check that vehicle falls within Vehicle Scope

                   The Work Instructions must require the user, before modifying a road vehicle in accordance with the Model Report, to do the following:

                     (a)  confirm that the vehicle falls within the Vehicle Scope (pre-modification specifications); and

                     (b)  if the vehicle does not fall within the Vehicle Scope—not proceed to modify the vehicle.

Note 1:       The Vehicle Scope will set out the specifications of a vehicle both before and after it has been modified (see Schedules 1 to 4). The former are the relevant specifications for the purposes of this section.

Note 2:       Where a vehicle is to be manufactured in accordance with a Model Report, the pre-modification specifications will not be relevant.

17  Work Instructions—component checks

                   The Work Instructions must require the user, before modifying a road vehicle in accordance with the Model Report, to confirm that the vehicle is fitted with the components, as identified in the supporting information for the application for approval of the Model Report, with which an unmodified vehicle of the relevant model or variant should be fitted.

18  Work Instructions—damage or corrosion checks

             (1)  Subject to subsection (4), the Work Instructions must set out the steps that the holder of a RAW approval must take to inspect a road vehicle that is to be modified in accordance with the Model Report for damage or corrosion, and repair of damage or corrosion.

Note:          Paragraph 65(3)(a) of the Rules requires the holder of the RAW approval to ensure that, before a road vehicle is modified under the approval, the vehicle is inspected for damage or corrosion, and repair of damage or corrosion. Paragraph 66(1)(c) of the Rules requires the approval-holder to keep a record of the results of that inspection.

             (2)  The Work Instructions must require the holder of a RAW approval to do the following if, after conducting the inspection mentioned in subsection (1), the approval-holder finds evidence of repair of damage or corrosion on the vehicle:

                     (a)  conduct a body alignment test;

                     (b)  seek information about the vehicle’s history.

Note:          Subsections 65(3) to (5) of the Rules require the RAW approval-holder, based on that inspection, to determine whether the vehicle exceeds the damage or corrosion limit determined under section 107 of the Rules (where applicable), or whether its structural integrity has been reduced by damage or corrosion. The body alignment test and vehicle history information assist the approval-holder to determine those matters. Where the vehicle does not pass the inspection, the approval-holder must not continue to work on the vehicle (see subparagraph 65(3)(b)(ii) of the Rules). 

             (3)  The Work Instructions must set out:

                     (a)  how to conduct the body alignment test; and

                     (b)  how to obtain information about a vehicle’s history.

19  Work Instructions—recall checks and rectification action

Checks that must be performed in respect of recalls

             (1)  The Work Instructions must set out:

                     (a)  the checks that the holder of a RAW approval must perform in relation to each vehicle manufactured or modified under the Model Report to identify all applicable recalls issued in the vehicle’s source market; and

                     (b)  how to locate the information required to confirm whether the vehicle has been rectified in accordance with each such recall.

Example:    For paragraph (1)(b)—the Work Instructions might direct the holder of the RAW approval to the manufacturer’s website, which provides details of the recall and rectification action required.

Notices that must be given in respect of unrectified vehicles

             (2)  The Work Instructions must require that, where a vehicle manufactured or modified by the holder of a RAW approval under the Model Report has not been rectified in accordance with a recall mentioned in paragraph (1)(a), the holder of the RAW approval must:

                     (a)  give a written notice to the holder of the concessional RAV entry approval that covers the vehicle (the customer) stating that the recall affects the vehicle, and asking the customer to either:       

                              (i)  instruct the holder of the RAW approval to rectify the vehicle in accordance with the recall; or

                             (ii)  instruct the holder of the RAW approval not to proceed with the rectification; or

                            (iii)  advise the holder of the RAW approval of alternative arrangements for rectifying the vehicle; and

                     (b)  notify the holder of the Model Report approval and the Department in writing where:

                              (i)  the rectification would require the holder of the RAW approval to depart from the Work Instructions; or

                             (ii)  the specifications of the vehicle would vary from the final approved specification once the vehicle had been rectified and subsequently modified in accordance with the Model Report.

Carrying out or checking rectification action 

             (3)  The Work Instructions must require the holder of the RAW approval to do the following:

                     (a)  if the customer instructs the holder of the RAW approval to proceed with the rectification—rectify the vehicle to address the issues that led to the recall;

                     (b)  if the vehicle is rectified by a third party—check whether the vehicle has been rectified in a manner that addresses the issues that led to the recall;

                     (c)  not proceed to the next stage of the Work Instructions unless and until the vehicle is rectified.

Note:          The holder of the RAW approval must not present an unrectified vehicle to the holder of an AVV approval for verification. Such a vehicle will not have been manufactured or modified in accordance with the requirements set out in the Model Report for the purposes of paragraph 65(1)(b) of the Rules.
