With the security of borders being a preoccupation of customs, Canada,
like other countries, is looking to receive shipment data
electronically either prior to departure or prior to arrival of goods
destined to Canada. Canada will exempt shipments released under the
FAST program from the ACI requirements
The ACI initiative will introduce more effective risk management
processes for the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to identify
threats to health, safety, and security prior to the arrival of
shipments in Canada.
Importers must be prepared to ensure that all data required for ACI
and the immanent implementation of mandatory transmission of release
data is available to avoid delays in the movement of their goods. This
is especially true for importers with high volume importations and/or
numerous types of products.
ACTS consultants can assist you by developing solutions that guarantee
all parties in your supply chain are in possession of the information
needed to effect the timely shipment and customs’ release of either
your imported or exported goods.
