North American Cargo Securement Harmonization Public Forum - Montreal 2017

Tuesday, November 28, 2017 (8:00 AM-5:00 PM)
Security of loads on vehicles is a matter of public safety, and is therefore subject to government regulation and a body of industry practice. Regulations on vehicle loads are set and enforced by the provinces in Canada and the states in the U.S.

Since 1994 there has been active and close collaboration between representatives of governments and industry in Canada and the United States in pursuit of developing and implementing uniform regulatory requirements for securement of cargo on highway transport vehicles. This collaboration takes place twice annually – once in the U.S. in the spring and once in Canada in the fall – at the North American Cargo Securement Harmonization Public Forum.

At the forum, stakeholders gather to discuss cargo securement regulations in pursuit of developing and implementing uniform regulatory requirements for the securement of cargo on or within commercial motor vehicles throughout North America.

In order to better enable communication of meeting documents and information, registration is requested.
