Austroads releases paper on future regulation of MMDs

Published

Austroads has released a discussion paper to investigate the future of national regulation for motorised mobility devices (MMD).

Following Standards Australia publishing a Technical Specification for motorised wheelchairs and mobility scooters in 2018, Austroads is exploring how this Technical Specification can be implemented to realise its intended safety benefits.

Through the discussion paper, Austroads is also addressing recommendations from the 2018 Senate Standing Committee on Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport’s Inquiry into the Need for regulation of mobility scooters, also known as motorised wheelchairs. This includes exploration of national licensing and registration arrangements for these devices and their users.
