Canada Border Services Agency has announced new
Electronic Bay Plan Requirements
for mandatory electronic reporting of Bay Plan data for all vessels carrying one or more containers. Carriers can now transmit their Bay Plan in the UN EDIFACT SMDG stow plan, i.e. BAPLIE versions 2.0.7, format. Recent proposed amendments to the
Reporting of Imported Goods Regulations published in Part I of the Canada Gazette will, when passed, bring the mandatory reporting requirement into effect.
