Taxi and minibus security camera specifications

The Department has developed new and simplified taxi & minibus security camera specifications, which allow for the recording of audio and use of remote access or cloud-based storage systems.

Activating these functions would be at the discretion of each operator and should not represent any significant increase in costs of installing new systems.

The new specifications also enable operators to install and have access to a forward facing camera as part of their systems, where remote access is activated.

All camera systems installed into taxis and minibuses from 1 January 2020 must comply with the new specifications.

You need to ensure your in-vehicle camera systems comply with the new specifications:

  • when swapping systems between vehicles
  • when replacing your vehicle or
  • where your existing system is no longer serviceable and needs replacing.
