Quebec applies for membership in IRP; New Brunswick application expected to be approved June 26

ARLINGTON, Va. (June 9) — Quebec has become the second Canadian province this year to apply for membership in the International Registration Plan (IRP), a wide-ranging prorate agreement on heavy-vehicle registration fees.

Fifty states and three provinces — Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia – belong to IRP. New Brunswick applied for IRP status earlier this year; formal approval is expected on June 26. Quebec would receive approval on Sept. 29.

Both provinces would implement IRP reporting procedures in April 2001.

IRP, established in 1973, created uniform standards for administration of heavy-vehicle registration fees.
