Carriers in BC are grouped into Risk Bands that are based on the size of fleets. The fleet size is determined by the number of days vehicles are licensed in a 12-month period. The following table outlines the fleet sizes in each Risk Band as of October 1, 2015 and the revised assignment of fleet sizes to each Risk Band.
Intervention & Profile Status Thresholds
The new thresholds will be calculated on a yearly basis and changed to reflect the top percentile non-compliant carriers in each risk band. The following table outlines the thresholds limits as of October 1, 2015.
The thresholds and provincial medians will be updated at the beginning of each calendar year to reflect the scores over the previous 12 months.
