PBS - Perfomance Based Standards

Through the Performance Based Standards (PBS) scheme, heavy vehicle operators have an opportunity to improve productivity, sustainability and safety through innovative and optimised vehicle design.

The basic principle of PBS is to match the right vehicle to the right freight task. PBS vehicles are specifically designed to have a high level of performance and meet strict safety and infrastructure standards to ensure they are suited to the road network.

The benefit of the PBS scheme is greater vehicle safety, increased freight productivity and fewer impacts on road infrastructure.

PBS vehicles fall into one of four levels, and have corresponding levels of road networks they can access.
