Is your company exporting goods outside of Canada and currently using paper B13A’s or CAED?
As of September 30, 2020, the CBSA will no longer accept paper B13A’s and/or declarations using the Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) system.
Exporters or service providers will be required to report exports electronically. Two electronic reporting methods are available to report goods: (1) the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS) and (2) the G7 Export Reporting Electronic Data Interchange (G7-EDI).
Exporters are encouraged to register for CERS immediately. CERS is a web-based, self-service portal for exporters to submit electronic declarations directly to CBSA. To begin, submit a completed application form to the Commercial Registration Unit: firstname.lastname@example.org
Application form and additional information can be found on Customs Notice 19-14. https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publications/cn-ad/cn19-22-eng.html
How to submit an export declaration can be found at: https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/export/reporting-declaration-eng.html
Exporters interested in a CERS Portal account can access the CERS Portal here: https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/prog/cers-scde/portal-portail/menu-eng.html
Please contact the Consulting Team at AD Rutherford for questions or concerns with CERS. Our team of experts are more than happy to assist through this process.
