Each profile represents a fixed percentile of overall Audit Compliance Achieved (or overall score).
- These 3 Profiles are evaluated in the facility audit. The total scores of these three profiles contribute to a carrier’s safety rating.
- Each profile represents the percentage of overall compliance that the carrier has achieved.
- Each profile consists of sub-sections weighted according to the level of risk to road safety.
Based on results of the audit, a profile of the carrier’s safety performance is created. A score is assigned and the results are discussed with the Chief Executive Officer or senior official of the company. Charges may be laid as a result of the audit and could result in conviction points on the carrier’s CVOR record.
The Facility Audit result is expressed as:
Excellent if the overall score is 80% and all profiles are 70% or greater.
Pass if the overall score is 55% or greater and no profile is below 50%
Fail if the overall score is below 55% or any profile is below 50%.
If a carrier fails an audit, the Registrar may propose that the carrier be assigned a Conditional Safety Rating. If a Conditional rating is assigned, the carrier will remain at that rating for at least six months. A carrier that is rated Conditional due to a failed audit must pass another audit to be proposed for an improved Safety Rating.
- Carriers that wish to improve their audit score and upgrade their safety rating may apply to the Ministry for a voluntary audit, but they must wait at least six months after a previous audit to do so.
- Facility Audits will not be considered for an upgrade to Satisfactory or Excellent safety rating, if the audit was completed more than 36 months ago.
