The Vehicle Safety Compliance Certification Scheme (VSCCS) licenses individuals who are qualified and experienced in the automotive industry, to inspect non-standard vehicles and certify compliance with NSW vehicle safety standards.
Non-standard vehicles include:
- significantly modified vehicles
- individually constructed vehicles
- certain imported vehicles.
Heavy vehicle modifications are inspected and assessed for compliance by VSCCS J&P certifiers.
The VSCCS J&P certifiers are specifically approved vehicle examiners under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) and are able to approve modifications under the conditions prescribed by the HVNL. They inspect and assess J and P modifications for compliance, where a J code modification includes simple body mountings, and a P code modification includes tow coupling, fifth wheel and king pin installations.
