Intervention and Consequences of Non-Compliance
As a result of an audit, MTO may take any one or a combination of the following intervention options:
- no action, as the operator has demonstrated acceptable compliance
- request a comprehensive action plan, acceptable to MTO, which the operator must develop
- impose conditions on the operator’s CVOR certificate, requiring the operator to take specific actions by the specified dates
- Not issue various types of permits or certificates
Facility-audit information is quantified and becomes an integral part of determining an operator’s Carrier Safety Rating. Therefore, It is essential that an operator demonstrate a high level of compliance to maintain an acceptable safety rating. Failure to do so may lead to an operator being restricted or prevented from operating commercial vehicles in the province of Ontario.
