The regulations provide for the health and safety of park users. They also set standards for the construction of park cabins. They do not cover the manufacture of caravans or campervans which, as road vehicles, have separate standards.
The regulations have updated emergency management planning requirements in case of possible emergencies such as bushfires, floods and severe storms - requiring caravan park owners to update or improve their emergency management plans. Regulation 22 sets out requirements in relation to the preparation of an emergency management plan where it must be prepared in consultation with the relevant emergency service agencies.
