Alberta Transportation monitors commercial truck and bus carrier’s compliance with transportation laws and requirements.
The Third Party Auditor Certification Program was created to meet the requirements for conducting commercial carrier safety fitness audits under the federal Motor Vehicle Transport Act and Alberta’s Traffic Safety Act.
Certified Auditors and Reviewers
Certified Third Party Auditors are certified to conduct:
- New Carrier Compliance Reviews
- Assessment of Compliance audits
- National Safety Code facility audits
- Verification audits
We do not set auditing or travel fees. Carriers should discuss their needs and expectations with several Certified Third Party Auditors prior to choosing the one that best meets their needs.
Third Party Auditors undergo strict screening, followed by a robust educational process which provides them with the necessary skills to conduct the different types of audits.
Third Party Auditors must submit an application package to Alberta Transportation in order to be considered for certification. Please refer to our recruitment advertisement (PDF, 144 KB) for more detailed information.
