The National Transport Commission has recently completed the review and update of the Load Restraint Guide in close consultation with stakeholders. The updated guide and complementary guide for light vehicles were launched in February 2018 following endorsement by transport ministers in November 2017.
This project ensured that the Load Restraint Guide:
- is easy to access and understand
- meets the needs of the people who use it
- is accurate, up to date and reflects the practices that have developed since the last edition of the Guide was published in 2004.
The Load Restraint Guide provides transport drivers, operators, and other participants in the transport chain of responsibility with basic safety principles which should be followed for the safe carriage of loads on road vehicles.
