Rules and Regulations

RVMAP ensures its accredited manufacturers understand and apply the latest Australian Design Rules and Australian Standards applicable to Recreational Vehicle manufacturing in Australia. Key areas covered by these rules and standards include, but are not limited to:

  • Gas and Electrical systems.
  • Towing and Undercarriage equipment.
  • Suspension and Braking systems.
  • Permissible masses and ratings.

RVMAP accredited manufacturers are also bound by the program’s Code of Practice which includes several important requirements that go beyond the official government rules and regulations, so consumers can buy with confidence when they see the RVMAP Accreditation Key.

RVMAP Technical Advisors are continually working with industry and government to keep abreast of regulation changes and technological advances. Accredited manufacturers also have access to additional technical publications which are regularly researched and written by RVMAP technical staff.
