Automated Vehicles NTC Australia

This week the National Transport Commission (NTC) has released the following;

  • Assuring the safety of automated vehicles policy paper

  • Clarifying control for automated vehicles policy paper

  • National enforcement guidelines for automated vehicles

Please find attached both policy paper and enforcement guidelines, or view them online at

National enforcement guidelines for automated vehicles                                                                                                                                              

The national enforcement guidelines for automated vehicles were approved by the Transport and Infrastructure Council in November 2017.

The purpose of these national enforcement guidelines is to:

  1. provide guidance about how the requirement of proper control in Australian Road Rule 297 should apply to vehicles with automated functions

  2. confirm that the human driver is responsible for complying with road traffic laws when a vehicle has conditional automation engaged at a point in time.

Assuring the safety of automated vehicles policy paper 

In November 2017, the Transport and Infrastructure Council approved the development of a safety assurance system for automated road vehicles based on mandatory self-certification in the interim period. Assuring the safety of automated vehicles policy paper (attached) provides further information and summarises the responses we received from consultation.
