eManifest Monetary Penalties For Non-Compliance Approaching

We are quickly approaching the July 12th marker, when monetary penalties are expected to be implemented by the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) to freight forwarders deemed to be non-compliant with e-Manifest filing requirements. CBSA has also recently introduced a new subset of status notifications called Deployment 4 (D4) notices. Vilden is proud to announce that we are officially D4 certified, and are providing these status updates through eCLEAR for all of our customers. Below you will find a summarized clarification on what D4 status updates are, the benefits of the new notifications. What are Deployment 4 (D4) Notifications?

  • Prior to D4, status updates were based on CCNs submitted by users; Release Notification System (RNS) messages based on the status of the release only.

  • The new (D4) eManifest notices are be based on the overall shipment status. eCLEAR will display status changes upon receipt from CBSA.

  • D4 notifications will advise on the completeness of advance data submitted to the CBSA, as well as the arrival and release statuses of shipments.

Below you will find a summarized timeline on where we are regarding the full implementation of CBSA's eManifest filing requirements. eManifest Implementation Timeline

  • From November 7, 2016, to January 10, 2017: As of November 7th, NVOCC filing details became mandatory for the Canadian Border Services Agency's (CBSA) eManifest filing regulation.  Between this date and January 10th, 2017, the CBSA provided freight forwarders with a period of transition during which penalties for non-compliance were not issued.

  • From January 11, 2017, to July 11, 2017: Freight forwarders deemed to be non-compliant with eManifest requirements may be issued zero-rated penalties (non-monetary) under the CBSA's Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS).

  • Beginning July 12, 2017: Freight forwarders deemed to be non-compliant with eManifest requirements may be issued monetary AMPS penalties.
