CBSA CAED Retires; New Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS)

Date Published: 2019-11-25

Effective June 30, 2020, all exporters and CSPs who previously used CAED, will be required to use CERS or G7 EDI to report their goods and submit their declarations to the CBSA. Also, as of June 30, 2020, the CBSA will be mandating electronic export reporting and will no longer accept Paper Export Declaration Forms (B13A). Exporters, or their customs service providers, will be required to report their exports electronically.

In preparation for CERS activation/registration, exporters and CSPs should review and verify their Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) issued business numbers to determine that they are activated for export, valid and not expired, as well as to confirm all contact, address and related information is current. You may contact the CRA business enquiries line at 1-800-959-5525, for business number registration and changes.
