The Trade Chain Partner (TCP) Working Group was established in July 2018. It is a key consultative body on the CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) project.
The mandate of the CARM TCP Working Group is to provide ongoing input, recommendations and feedback on the CARM design and implementation.
Responsibilities and Duties
Chaired by the Vice-President, CARM Branch, the TCP Working Group provides input on the current state of the trade community and its key challenges. It also ensures appropriate consultations are conducted, and raises awareness of CARM among the trade community.
