CALGARY, Alta. – The Canadian Petroleum Products Institute (CPPI) has made new driver certification forms available, to comply with the Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act (PIEDA).
Introduced in January of 2001, the PIEDA requires that anyone who submits personal information must be made aware and understand why the information is being collected, what it will be used for, who may access it and how long it will be retained. Drivers must now acknowledge in writing that they are aware their information is on file.
From now on, drivers will have to agree to be included in the database, and the new forms released by CPPI require the signature of any driver who will be added to the database.
The form was required for use as of Sept. 1, and in September 2003, any of the 6,000 drivers in the database who did not sign the new forms will be eliminated from the database. By that time, drivers currently in the database will have had to renew their certification using the new forms.
To obtain the forms or for information, call Tom Eason of CPPI at 403-266-7565. n
