The Carrier & Vehicle Safety Section of Alberta Transportation 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.

The administrative group undertakes additional monitoring of liability, cargo and passenger hazard insurance. This group is responsible for the distribution of the Carrier Profiles and supports the activities of the Registrar and the Alberta Transportation Safety Board.
