AMVIR controls the release of information by the Registrar to recipients with an AMVIR authorized purpose through AMVIR Agreements.

All employees of an organization that require access to motor vehicle information are required to read the AMVIR Recipient’s Employees Code of Conduct Regarding Access to and Release of Information (the “Code”).

The Code is part of the Policies referred in the AMVIR Agreement. This Code and any subsequent versions published on the Registrar’s website come into full force and effect and apply 30 days after the date of publication.

Any individual having access to motor vehicle information is required to sign the Recipient's Employee Code of Conduct Acknowledgement Form (Code Acknowledgement).NEW July 24, 2017

By signing the Code Acknowledgment the individuals agree to:

  • consult Registrar’s website at least one time per month,
  • read and comply with any changes in the Code, applicable legislation, or Policies, and
  • be bound by the current version of the Code published on the Registrar’s website.
Note: A version of the Code Acknowledgement form A-003 was published on the Registrar's website on July 24, 2017. When there are no changes in their information, any individual that has completed and signed the previous version of the form (2016/10) is not required to complete and sign the new version: REG11355 (2017/02).NEW July 24, 2017
