What is a VASS and why do I need one?

A VASS Certificate is an approval certificate issued under the VicRoads Vehicle Assessment Signatory Scheme. It is also known as an “Engineer’s Certificate” or “Engineer’s Report”. Other states can call it “Blue plates”, “VSB6 Plates”, or “VSB14 approval”. Whatever you name it, it only refers to one thing, and that is an Approval Certificate for a modification carried out to a vehicle.

Light vehicles which have a GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) of 4500 kgs and below will require an Approval Certificate accepted by the Registration Authority. Each state has their own scheme for modification approvals. Some states will accept Approval Certificates from other States as proof of compliance. Others will need to be issued in the approving State’s scheme only. All modified light vehicles will need to be made available to the marketplace prior to modification and be provided with a weighbridge docket from a Public Weighbridge.

A list of the types of modifications that require a VASS Certificate can be viewed at VSI 8 from VicRoads. For more details on standards and requirements, you can go to VSB14 National Code of Practice for Light Vehicle Construction and Modifications
