Prince Edward Island Now Accepting RVIA Seal

Manufacturers shipping recreational vehicle products to Prince Edward Island, Canada now have the option of affixing either a CSA Z240 or the RVIA NFPA 1192 standard seal. Prince Edward Island is the second Canadian province to change its Traffic Safety Act and motor vehicle regulations to recognize both CSA Z240 and NFPA 1192. The Province of Alberta began accepting the RVIA seal earlier this summer.


For many years, RVIA has been working with its 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 leadership in effecting these changes. It is RVIA's understanding that the Province of British Columbia is also close to adopting the policy of honoring either the CSA Z240 seal or the RVIA Seal.
