The Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators has posted an application guide for new Canadian hours-of-service regulations, which are set to be implemented Jan. 1, 2007. According to CCMTA, the new Canadian logs will be valid for use both in Canada and the United States.
The current Canadian logs are required to have everything that U.S. logs need, except the shipping document number and/or name of shipper and commodity. A driver using a strictly U.S.-compliant log will have to add several items to the log in order to enter Canada, namely:
Canada will require all drivers to carry 15 logs in the truck (today plus 14 days), where the United States requires only eight (today plus seven days). For more information, click here.
