Toronto, April 16, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) has delayed the decommissioning date of the Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) system from June 30, 2020 to September 30, 2020.  The Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS) will replace CAED, which is the existing electronic export filing system.
Paper-based reporting, via the B13A – Export Declaration Form, will no longer be permitted as of June 30 2020.  Anyone presently using the paper reporting process will have to start using CERS on June 30, 2020.  However, anyone who now uses CAED will have until September 30, 2020 to switch to CERS.
The CBSA strongly encourages exporters and Customs service providers to activate their Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS) accounts as soon as possible.
