Land Transport Rule: Regulatory Stewardship (Omnibus) Amendment 2018

Submissions for this consultation is now closed.

Progress of the Land Transport Rule: Regulatory Stewardship (Omnibus) Amendment 2018 project.

Originally, it was anticipated the changes to Land Transport Rules resulting from this project would be signed by the Associate Minister of Transport before the end of 2018. However, this is now more likely to be in early 2019.

The NZ Transport Agency received a total of 41 submissions on the proposed changes, and these have been considered in preparing the final draft Amendment Rules.

The report summarising the submissions and the responses to the points raised, will be available once the proposed changes have been considered by Cabinet and signed by the Minister.
