The Commercial Vehicle Industry Associtation of Australia (CVIAA) has been working hard in conjunction with other state associations through the National Heavy Vehicle Braking Strategy, Industry Reference Group for Phase II, in the development of the newly released Guide to braking and stability performance for heavy vehicles.

This Guide provides brake and stability performance ratings for truck and trailer combinations, with varying brake technologies. It aims to assist the Australian road transport sector to achieve best practice in the braking and stability performance of heavy combination vehicles.

The guide was developed by the ATA, Industry Technical Council (ITC), the Australian Livestock and Rural Transporters Association, the Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association, the Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Australia, Heavy Vehicle Industry Australia and the Truck Industry Council.

There is a limited availability of hard-copy versions of the guide, if you would like a copy please email your name, and mailing address to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Overview

This Guide provides brake and stability performance ratings for truck and trailer combinations, with varying brake technologies. It aims to assist the Australian road transport sector to achieve best practice in the braking and stability performance of heavy combination vehicles. It is directed towards operators and purchasers of heavy vehicles, technicians who maintain vehicles and to the suppliers of those vehicles. The Guide is based on the collective experience of operators, suppliers, regulators and industry groups. It does not replace, vary or modify existing laws and regulations. This Guide assumes that all parts of the combination are roadworthy, properly maintained to the manufacturers specifications and fitted with appropriate servicable tyres that are infolated to the correct (manufacturers recommended) pressure.
