About Farm Gate Access

The Farm Gate Access scheme uses the Road Infrastructure Management (RIM) application of the National Telematics Framework.

Find out about the Farm Gate Access Network on the Transport for NSW website. See also the public announcement from NSW, and the Farm Gate Access Factsheet.

Transport operators must conform with the requirements specified within the NSW Class 3 Livestock Transportation Exemption Notice or the NSW Class 3 Grain Harvest Management Scheme Mass Exemption Notice, which are available on the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) website.

Enrolment in the RIM application is one of these requirements.

Enrolling in RIM for Farm Gate Access

Transport operators can enrol vehicles into Farm Gate Access by contacting a registered Application Service Provider (ASP) or certified ASP.

Data generated from enrolled vehicles is sent to TCA from each ASP. Aggregated and de-identified reports are made available to Transport for NSW and participating Local Governments via the Telematics Analytics Platform (TAP).

Further details about the operation of the scheme are available in the Farm Gate Access Schemes document.
