ITS Australia to Contribute to Key Government Consultations


As part of our ongoing policy and advocacy work, ITS Australia is preparing submissions on a range of government consultations through the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development, Transport, Communications and the Arts.

We welcome input from industry into our submissions – contact our Policy Manager Stacey Ryan,, if you would like to contribute to our submissions. Alternatively, you may like to consider making a submission directly.

The consultations we are contributing to are:

  • The draft ‘2024–27 National Connected and Automated Vehicle (CAV) Action Plan’ is a detailed document that outlines the proposed activities relating to CAVs including policies, regulations and technology. The National Road Transport Technology Strategy draft for public consultation is a companion document to the Action Plan. These important strategic documents were covered in our recent Industry Briefing webinar and aim to deliver a nationally consistent approach by governments to supporting new road transport technologies. A nationally consistent approach helps governments and industry make investment decisions, and facilitates the smooth operation of technologies across state and territory borders. Both documents are available heresubmissions close Wed 6 Dec.
  • The ‘Discussion Paper on Telecommunications Legislation and Connected Vehicles’ queries how the telecommunications law should apply to CAVs. The Department would like to better understand how the connectivity of these vehicles intersects with telecommunications infrastructure and consider how they should be regulated under the telecommunications law– submissions close Fri 8 Dec.
  • Two related consultations are ‘Extending telecommunications security reform instruments’ in which the government is consulting on the extension of legislative instruments to ensure continued security obligations for the telecommunications sector submissions close Wed 13 Dec and the Discussion Paper on Registration or Licensing Scheme for Carriage Service Providers’ is considering the existing telecommunications consumer protections framework to determine whether it remains fit for purpose – submissions close Fri 22 Dec.

These are important opportunities to contribute to important policy developments that will impact the future ITS industry. We encourage you to have your say.
