Member Verification Program (MVP)

NTEA's MVP celebrates 10 years of recognizing quality and safety processes

Endorsed by NAFA Fleet Management Association
NAFA Logo_0811NAFA has recognized the value of the NTEA MVP and has officially endorsed the program for the betterment of the industry. The NTEA MVP provides a visible designation for truck equipment manufacturers and distributors that have implemented specific business and quality standards and process, and have taken significant steps to comply with certain applicable federal regulations.

Attention new MVP applicants and renewals
In keeping with the NTEA’s goal to continuously increase the value of the MVP, the Association periodically expands program standards to include more stringent requirements.

PLEASE NOTE: The latest refinement makes the Educational Criterion required instead of optional for all companies applying for or renewing MVP status on or after July 1, 2013.

Every MVP member must provide documentation of these upgraded criteria as their status comes up for renewal (every three years). This ensures MVP businesses continuously strive to maintain a commitment to professionalism, industry knowledge and high performance standards.

The following applications are tailored specifically to Canadian NTEA members:

MVP application information
Distributor and Manufacturer members are asked to complete an Application Form (see above) and attach required documentation. There is no application fee involved.

MVP companies will be announced on a quarterly basis (Jan. 1, April 1, July 1 and Oct. 1) in a variety of electronic and print communications, including a press release to key trade media.
