MPI Hours of Service – Transportation
Applicability: These rules are applicable province-wide to a driver while operating a commercial motor vehicle solely for the transportation of property or persons to or from a theatrical film, video, commercial or television motion picture production site.
Maximum on-duty hours per day (BC): 14 hours
Maximum off-duty hours per day (BC): 10 hours each day. Up to 2 hours may be in blocks of at least 30 minutes
Log books: Drivers are required to record hours using a graph grid (paper or electronic) that is compliant with Schedule 2. A Carrier may choose to modify the graph grid to remove “Off-duty time when spent in a sleeper berth”. Carriers and drivers are not eligible to use the local time records exemption under MVAR 37.18.01
- For the purposes of the proposed pilot, the carrier is assumed to be the production company or studio responsible for the production, regardless of what NSC certificate is displayed on a vehicle’s registration documents. The carrier has overall responsibility for monitoring and ensuring compliance with the Hours of Service rules for all drivers operating as part of the production.
- During the pilot, carriers and drivers operating under the pilot will be exempt from MVAR 37.13.01 through 37.14.04 and 37.16.02 through 37.16.06 as these requirements are replaces by the MPI Hours of Service rules defined below (please see the attached PDF). All other requirements under MVAR Division 37, Part 3 are still in force.
