Access Applications

Road Infrastructure Management (RIM)

RIM provides a new way of collecting road use data from vehicles to better inform and optimise the management of road networks.

RIM is a low-cost application that monitors parameters of location, time and identity.

Analysis and reports can include aggregated and de-identified data, and show trends across a network.

Enrolling vehicles in RIM

Enrolment is a simple process. We’re here to help – contact TCA to get started.

Using telematics already fitted to your vehicle

Transport operators can use their existing telematics systems in RIM.

Contact us to see whether you can register your existing system for RIM.

How it can be used

Road managers and planners may use RIM to gain a better understanding of road and bridge infrastructure utilisation to inform road infrastructure and network planning.

Road managers or regulators will advise when enrolment into the RIM application is required.

Schemes

See Road Infrastructure Management Schemes for operating arrangements in place.

Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA)

TMA is a monitoring application that provides a flexible, cost effective approach to the management of vehicle access using telematics.

It offers a lower level of assurance for lower risk activities compared to the Intelligent Access Program (IAP).

TMA monitors parameters of location, time and identity. Speed can be derived from position records.

Optional features include the monitoring of mass and vehicle configuration, or the self-declaration of data through a user interface.

Analysis and reports contain identifiable data.

Using telematics already fitted to your vehicle

Transport operators can use their existing telematics systems in TMA.

Contact us to see whether you can register your existing system for TMA.

How it can be used

TMA may be applied to monitor lower risk road use activities, and is used in conjunction with a TCA-approved telematics device.

Road managers or regulators will advise transport operators when enrolment of vehicles into TMA is required.

Schemes

See Telematics Monitoring Application Schemes for operating arrangements in place.

Intelligent Access Program (IAP)

IAP is an assessment application that manages higher risk vehicles and loads on the road network.

It monitors heavy vehicle operations against conditions of access set by road managers or regulators.

IAP monitors parameters of location, speed, time and identity. An optional feature is the self-declaration of data through a user interface.

Event reports are generated when a vehicle breaches location, time or speed conditions.

How it can be used

It is used to support productivity and safety reforms that require the right truck to be on the right road, at the right time.

Road managers or regulators will advise transport operators when enrolment into the IAP is required.

Schemes

There are over 75 road network access entitlements monitored though the IAP application.

For Victorian IAP

At the direction of the NHVR, Transport Certification Australia (TCA) will be assuming responsibility for administering the back-office services for the IAP in Victoria. From 8 December 2019, please contact TCA on (03) 8601 4600, or at operations@sandbox.tca.noice.work regarding any issues, queries or concerns you may have with regards to your Intelligent Access Conditions or IAP approvals.

Please visit the NHVR website for application forms, permits, notices and access approvals.
