Cargo Securement Standard

Since 1994 there has been active and close collaboration between representatives of governments and industry in both Canada and the United States in pursuit of developing and implementing uniform regulatory requirements for securement of cargo on highway transport vehicles. New regulations based on the North American Standard came into effect in Canada in January, 2005. A training programme, including and Instructors Manual, Participants Guide, and Driver Handbook, developed by the Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) & the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA), is available for downloading from:
