Heavy Vehicle National Law and other legislation amendment bill 2016  has now been passed in Queensland. The proposed changes will significantly alter the current regime and impose a ‘primary duty’ on all parties in the chain of responsibility to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety of road transport activities. This means that enforcement agencies can bring proceedings against parties in the chain without some harm or incident having to first occur. The changes also impose significant maximum penalties that give teeth to the primary duty and align with other national safety laws.

The reforms were championed by the ATA include:
- a primary safety duty that will apply to all parties in the chain of  
   responsibility, including consignors and consignees
- the extension of chain of responsibility to truck maintenance and
  repairs (roadworthiness)
- a dramatic reduction in red tape
- higher maximum penalties ($3m)
-  new due diligence obligation on company directors and
   executives, but with a requirement that the prosecution prove its
   case. (Function rather than title)
