CBSA eManifest Information
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) would like to thank you for participating in the eManifest Webinar. Please be advised of the following information, and we would appreciate your assistance in extending this information to your members, clients and trade chain partners, as applicable.
eManifest requirements for highway carriers to transmit cargo and conveyance data to the CBSA before goods arrive at the border are mandatory beginning November 1, 2012.
All eManifest data transmission methods are now available for highway carriers, including:
· the Internet-based eManifest Portal, developed by the CBSA primarily for small- to medium-sized businesses, and
· Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) options (Value Added Network, Customs Internet Gateway, Direct Connect to the CBSA and Third Party Service Providers).
Several resources are available on the CBSA Web site to help clients prepare for mandatory eManifest requirements and for you to use when informing your audiences. For example, you can:
