In previous issues of Route we identified the 4 key aspects of registering for CARM (CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management) and, with the anticipated effective date of Release 2 approaching (scheduled for May 2024) importers who have not yet registered must act quickly.
Here’s what you need to know to get ready…
- Identify your company’s Business Account Manager(s) – BAM
- Register your business in the CARM Client Portal
- Delegate authority to your customs broker
- Secure a Release of Goods Bond – Release 2 (scheduled for October 2023)
The CBSA’s Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) team is hosting free CARM webinars – tailored specifically for Importers – and focusing on 2 topics, CARM Client Portal Onboarding and What You Need to Know with CARM Release 2.
