CBSA update on break-bulk exemption

Canada Border Services Agency has released Customs Notice 14-006 to provide an update on changes to the Advance Commerical Information timeframes for pre-arrival reporting of breakbulk cargo in the marine mode.   Amendments proposed to the Reporting of Imported Goods Regulations published in the Canada Gazette Part I, when enacted, will allow all breakbulk cargo to be reported at least 24 hours before estimated time of arrival in Canada.  The amendments eliminate the annual application process that breakbulk carriers must currently follow.  As the regulations expect to be finalized later in 2014, CBSA has automatically extended all breakbulk authorizations for the 2013-14 year to 2014-15 to facilitate the transition.
