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 October 2023) importers who have not yet registered must act quickly.
As customs brokers we are used to managing change, especially new CBSA initiated programs. In most cases, we manage these changes behind the scenes. Our clients rightfully expect that we will take care of everything on their behalf – and we do. CARM , however, is one of the first Customs initiatives that absolutely requires importer engagement.
IMPORTANT: All importers to Canada (whether resident or non-resident) must take certain steps – if not, they simply won’t be able to import into Canada once CARM Release 2 comes into effect (scheduled for October 2023).
Universal Logistics will help our clients along the road to CARM to ensure a smooth transition.
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)
