The transitional period is 18 months, starting on 1 December 2022 and ending on 1 June 2024
Effected heavy vehicles must be fully transitioned to TMA and Smart OBM by 1 June 2024 to continue to operate on State controlled roads in Queensland.
If you are currently enrolled in IAP or Queensland Interim OBM, you will need to cancel your enrolment after enrolling in TMA and Smart OBM.
To cancel IAP or Queensland Interim OBM enrolments, contact Transport and Main Roads at IAPAdmin@tmr.qld.gov.au
For customers already utilising Airtec SmartOBM units, your scales may already be compatible with TMA. However, transport operators should check with Airtec and their ASP provider to confirm. If new or upgraded equipment is required, this will need to be arranged.
Smart OBM costs may vary depending on whether existing IVU’s and Airtec are compatible with TMA and Smart OBM, or if new equipment is required.
Transport operators should check with Airtec and their ASP provider to confirm equipment requirements and costs.
Operators will not be required to apply for new permits. All existing permits will be amended to allow for the transition. Any new permits issued from 1 December 2023 will include TMA and/or Smart OBM as required.
