Protocols and Procedures

General Verification Protocol

  • The Canadian ETV Program has a “General Verification Protocol” (GVP) that provides the criteria and process for doing any verification.
  • This document was created in March 2000 and was substantially revised in February 2007.
  • The GVP is used by Verification Entities in the verification process and offers a comprehensive and rigorous procedure so that all verifications are done in a consistent manner.
