The Free and Secure Trade (FAST) program is a joint Canada-U.S.
initiative involving the Canada Border Services Agency,
Citizenship and Immigration Canada and, the United States Bureau of
Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
It is a harmonized commercial process offered to pre-approved
importers, carriers, and registered drivers. Shipments for approved
companies, transported by approved carriers using registered drivers,
will be cleared into either country with greater speed and certainty,
and at a reduced cost of compliance.
In Canada, FAST eligibility requires the importer to be a participant
to the CSA program and as well as increased security measures under
the PIP program.
In the USA, FAST eligibility requires the importer to be a participant
in the C-TPAT program.
