Tow truck standards draft nearing completion

The Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland has been working with the ME5-23 Committee revising the Tow Truck requirements that were previously in AS1418 Cranes Hoists and Winches.

The CVIAQ say the new standard is at a point where the next version will be a draft for public comment to be released early in the new year.

The new Standard will address a number of issues that have been undefined since the requirements were deleted from AS1418 quite a few years ago.

The new Standard will provide ‘workable standards for winch selection and guidance on control systems and documentation’ say the CVIAQ.
