NON-COMPLYING BULLBAR EXEMPTION ORDER

NON-COMPLYING BULLBAR EXEMPTION ORDER

In 2014 a Ministerial Exemption Order was established to provide some tolerance for people who have inadvertently purchased non-complying bullbars.  That Ministerial Order has been extended until 16 September 2017.  The NSW Centre for Road Safety is consulting with industry, manufacturers and enforcement agencies before any changes to the guidelines takes place.  The Ministerial Order allows some tolerance from the standard but still ensures that key areas of the bullbar’s design consider safety such as having minimum ground clearance, forward vision and lights, indicators and number plates remain visible.  If you have any doubt as to whether your bullbar is compliant, more information can be found here:
