The province is implementing all four recommendations from the Truck Compliance Advisory Panel Report to improve safety on BC’s highways. The recommendations being implemented are:

  • The creation of a Premium Carrier program that recognizes safe carriers
  • Best practice development that integrates greater shipper responsibility
  • Greater authority over Designated Inspection Facilities and inspectors
  • Increased enforcement to ensure mechanically-unsound commercial vehicles are immediately taken off the road.
