VSB 14 definition:
‘An ICV is not a production vehicle; rather it is manufactured as a one-off vehicle. If 3 or more ICVs are manufactured by a person in a 12 month period VSB 14 does not apply to these vehicles. These vehicles are subject to the vehicle certification procedures under the Motor Vehicle Standards Act. Vehicles manufactured on a commercial basis are not ICVs.
An ICV may be composed of parts from one or more Production Vehicles. The parts do not
need to be new.
ICVs include certain kit cars and certain production vehicle replicas that have been assembled in accordance with the production limitations mentioned above.
An ICV should comply with the ADRs applicable to its date of manufacture. Each Registration Authority will determine the date of manufacture of an ICV. It is important that prospective builders discuss this issue with the appropriate jurisdiction before commencing a project.’
‘An ICV means a vehicle based on a floor pan or chassis which is neither taken from, nor an original replacement part for, a Recognised Production Vehicle. An ICV is considered to be a new vehicle even if some of the components used in its construction may have been derived from Recognised Production Vehicles’
‘In Victoria, one ICV per individual may be approved per calendar year. A turn key motor vehicle cannot be treated as an ICV’
Date of Manufacture:
‘The construction of an ICV is often a long term project. In Victoria, an ICV’s date of manufacture (Month/Year) may be dated back to the date construction actually commenced up to a maximum of 3 years before the date of issue of the VASS certificate provided by the VASS Signatory retains documentary evidence of the date construction commenced’.
