Postponed due to Covid restrictions – rescheduled date is to be confirmed.

As a wine producer, wine grape grower and transporter of grapes and bottled wine, you are required to comply with the Chain of Responsibility requirements.

This includes ensuring that goods are not overloaded and that they are secured properly.

For heavy vehicle transport within Western Australia, these requirements are subject to Western Australian laws, whereas any heavy vehicles from Western Australia crossing into the other States are subject to the Heavy Vehicle National Law.

To ensure a consistent approach to Chain of Responsibility across wine growing regions of Australia, a new Registered Industry Code of Practice is being developed by the South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA) in partnership with Australian Grape & Wine (AGW).

As part of the national wine industry roadshow, two stakeholder engagement meetings will be held in Western Australia.

What is the purpose of the Roadshow?
The purpose is to provide an opportunity for the wine industry to provide industry input, discuss key issues and practical solutions in relation to Chain of Responsibility compliance to ensure any Code of Practice reflects industry needs and requirements.

Who should attend?
The meeting is aimed at wine producers, grape growers, vineyard contractors and transporters.

Date: TBC
Location: Swan River Hotel, 1 Epsom Avenue, Ascot
