- Penalty basis
- Per document
- Retention period
- 12 months
Non-compliance occurs when a person fails to provide a permit, licence, certificate or other document or information that is required by customs at time of interim or final accounting before the goods are released.
For example, a release request was received for a shipment of cheese without a permit.
Or, a release request for agricultural goods was transmitted with an incorrect service option bypassing the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) review process.
Although a penalty may be applied under this contravention all OGD admissibility requirements must be met prior to release. It is also possible that the OGD may have their own administrative monetary penalties.
