Resources – Commercial carriers

Commercial vehicles must be licensed and operated in accordance with provincial and federal legislation.

Contact information for Carrier Compliance, National Safety Code/Operating Authority and third party auditor program administration can be found on the Commercial carriers contact page.


The Carrier & Vehicle Safety Section is responsible for the coordination and delivery of the National Safety Code (NSC) standards for more than 25,000 bus and truck carriers. All NSC bus and truck carriers are monitored under the Carrier Profile system and may be subject to the Progressive Discipline Program.

Carrier & Vehicle Safety ensures all carriers are licensed according to provincial and federal requirements. This involves the application and issuing of Safety Fitness Certificates, as well as the monitoring of carrier safety and maintenance programs. Components of the NSC as implemented in Alberta are reviewed during a facility audit.
