ACI e-manifest is MANDATORY

With the implementation of e-manifest, highway carriers transporting goods into Canada are required to transmit cargo and conveyance data electronically to the CBSA prior to arrival. The cargo and conveyance data must be received and validated by the CBSA a minimum of one hour before the shipment arrives at the border.

Simple Ace can assist you with the new requirements by the CBSA.

For more information, refer to Memorandum D12-3-1, Pre-Arrival Highway.

Implementation timelines for ACI e-manifest

On May 6, 2015, regulatory amendments supporting the e-manifest initiative were published in the Canada Gazette, Part II. e-manifest requirements for highway carriers are now mandatory and the following implementation timelines apply:

  • From May 6, 2015, to July 10, 2015, the CBSA will provide carriers with a period of transition during which penalties for non-compliance will not be issued. The CBSA will work closely with carriers on corrective measures to help them comply with e-manifest requirements.
  • From July 10, 2015, to January 10, 2016, carriers who do not comply with e-manifest requirements may be issued zero-rated penalties (non-monetary) under the CBSA’s Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS).
  • Beginning January 10, 2016, carriers who do not comply with e-manifest requirements may be issued monetary AMPS penalties
 Simple Ace can assist you with the implementation of  new requirements of the CBSA.
