Online Webinar

This upcoming presentation covers the required top mandatory items that each and every importer must fulfill to meet CBSA’s CARM "release 2" mandate in order to obtain a Customs Release. 

CBSA’s new CARM initiative requires all importers, regardless of the number of imports or size to meet the upcoming mandates in order to obtain a Customs’ release of their shipments when "release 2" is implemented. Originally, R2 (release 2) was to come into affect May 2022, however CBSA has postponed until January 2023.

Importers must register in the CARM portal, and ensure they have adequate RPP security in place before the deadline. The use of a 'Customs Broker’s bond' will be eliminated and become the responsibility of the importer to obtain, and control. The CBSA is changing the payment time frames, and shifting to the importer for the liability and payment. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Details on the mandatory items to meet the CBSA and CARM mandates before the upcoming deadline
  • What it means for the elimination of the ‘customers broker’s bond’
  • What to be aware of in preparing your organization and supply chain
