The CBSA Commercial Client Portal that is being developed under the CARM initiative will allow trade chain partners to:
- Register for a business number with the CBSA, if they do not have one already. The registration process will save all basic client information, such as name and address. It will reduce repetitive data requests when logging into an account and enrolling in CBSA commercial programs.
- Enroll in most CBSA commercial programs that relate to:
- Importers /exporters
- Carriers / freight forwarders
- Customs broker licensing
- Sufferance warehouse licensing
- Bonded warehouse licensing
- Duty-free shop operators
- Request an advanced ruling, receive/view notifications, submit accounting declarations, and file recourse requests.
- View Statement of Accounts (SOAs) and Daily Notices.
CARM will make it easier for you to import goods into Canada. You will be able to use a mobile application or the CBSA Commercial Client Portal to declare and assess the value of your goods, and make your payments electronically. There will be no need to fill paper forms.
CARM will introduce new tools to help you manage your imports. You will have the ability to access and analyze your historical import data, and view and make changes to any transactions. You will continue to have the current services available through the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
Customs brokers and service providers
Once authorized by your clients, customs brokers and other service providers will be able to view and manage importer account information, and perform certain importing activities on their behalf.
The CARM project team is working closely with the Trade Chain Partner Working Group (TCPWG) to gather ongoing input from the trade community on the CARM design and implementation.
The project team is also engaging Other Government Departments (OGDs) to ensure the CARM solution integrates with their systems.
