New Canadian Export Requirements

     Export

Exporting from Canada? – Here’s what you need to know…

June 30, 2020 is the deadline for mandatory electronic export reporting.  Paper Export Declarations – Form B13A – will no longer be accepted by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

The current electronic export reporting system, CAED (Customs Automated Export Declarations), will be decommissioned on September 30, 2020, and CERS (Canadian Exporting Reporting System) replaces CAED.

Universal Logistics has been at the forefront of all CERS directives as part of the initial CERS Pilot Working Group – a collaborative group with representation from CBSA, Statistics Canada and select Trade Chain Partners, including exporters and service providers.  As early adaptors of this CBSA initiative, Universal is fully CERS-operational and reports all client export declarations electronically via CERS.

Details of the Canadian Export Reporting System can be found on CBSA’s web site.

If you require assistance with your exports – or simply with your export reporting under the new CERS requirements – we’re here to help.
