New ROVER system for import approval applications

Rover import approval application

After an extended transition phase, the new Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 (RVSA) finally replaced the old Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 (MVSA) on 1 July 2021.

Import approvals will no longer be issued for vehicle models under the old regulations after 31 March 2022 and those vehicles must have a compliance plate fitted by 30 June 2022.

An online system called ROVER is now used to apply for import approvals under the new legislation, including import approval applications under the 25 Year Rule.

A user account in ROVER must be created before an import approval application can be submitted. A 100 point ID check is required.
