Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2013
25 FUTURE FREIGHT NETWORKS 2013 CODE OF PRACTICE In 2012, the number of NLSC licences increased to three with the establishment of the Coal Seam Gas Logistics Safety Code, with Origin Energy, Santos and Arrow Energy joining the program. During 2012, both the Australian Steel Industry Logistics Code and the Retail Logistics Supply Chain Code increased their numbers of signatories, with more than 100 members -- both large and small companies -- now completing their annual audits. In January 2013, with the establishment of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator, one of their rst tasks will be to review the registration process of the existing Code of Practice. ALC expects that the existing registered codes of practice will be granted automatic registration under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL). This would mean that compliance with the Code could be taken as evidence that all reasonable steps were taken to prevent a contravention of the new law, and assist operators in complying with chain or responsibility requirements under the HVNL. In effect, it shifts the burden of proof from the defendant to the prosecution to show that reasonable steps were not taken to prevent a contravention. Having the code recognised nationally will provide industry with a low-cost path to compliance. It will provide signatories with greater certainty in interstate carriages that they are meeting heavy vehicle and OHS requirements. Safety National Logistics Safety Code of Practice (NLSC)
