Economic benefits of heavy vehicle regulatory reform

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) asked HoustonKemp to undertake an independent assessment of the economic benefits resulting from the heavy vehicle reform agreed to by the Council of Australian Governments in 2008.

Our approach to estimating the benefits of national heavy vehicle reform is a bottom-up approach where we reviewed the activities the NHVR has undertaken and considered:
• what would have happened if the legacy regulation had continued to operate – (the base case); and compared this with
• the actual situation that has occurred since the establishment of the NHVR (ie, the realised case).

This report was requested by the NHVR to assist in their submission to the Productivity Commission’s National Transport Regulatory Reform inquiry.
