About NORPASS

NORPASS
North American Preclearance and Safety System

What is NORPASS

NORPASS is NOT a data collection system. The NORPASS Board of Directors are committed to promoting safe and efficient trucking throughout North America. NORPASS encourages the use of mainline screening devices allowing participating safe and legal commercial vehicles to bypass specific weigh stations allowing enforcement to concentrate its efforts on high-risk carriers.
Use of a transponder is voluntary.  The only cost to the carrier is the charge for the transponder.  There are no monthly or annual fees.

NORPASS Goals

  • Promote interoperability across jurisdictional lines (transparent borders)
  • Provides a forum where jurisdictions can work together to address common issues related to electronic screening
  • Provides encouragement and assistance to jurisdictions that are beginning to implement electronic screening
