Province of Alberta, Canada Now Accepting RVIA Seal

Manufacturers shipping recreational vehicle products into Alberta, Canada now have the option of affixing either a CSA Z240 or the RVIA NFPA 1192 standard seal.Alberta Province is the first to change its Traffic Safety Act and motor vehicle regulations to recognize both CSA Z240 and NFPA 1192.


For many years, RVIA has been working with our Canadian counterparts in an effort to have Canada accept RVIA’s seal standards. To that end, RVIA appreciates the efforts of Eleonore Hamm, Canada RVDA’s Executive Vice President, and those of Dan Merkowsky, Executive Vice President of RVDA Alberta, for their assistance in effecting these changes. It is our understanding that the Provinces of British Columbia and Prince Edward Island are also close to adopting the above policy of honoring either the CSA Z240 seal or the RVIA Seal.


The following information is posted in full on the Queen's printer's website:
