Volumes and Value for Duty of imports and exports continue to increase significantly year over year.

Non-compliance levels have kept pace.

CBSA determined that new approach to compliance was needed. Objective of the new compliance program is: Conducive to compliance improvement and national consistency. Cohesive, integrated and risk based. Flexible enough to adapt going forward. CBSA Compliance Objectives

CBSA determined that new approach to compliance was needed.

Objective of the new compliance program is:

Conducive to compliance improvement and national consistency.

Cohesive, integrated and risk based.

Flexible enough to adapt going forward.

The responsibility for compliance belongs to everyone: importers, exporters, various service providers and CBSA. Most effective approach is to work together. Accurate trade information is key to: The government in making decisions such as fiscal policy and the negotiation of favourable trade agreements. The trade community in making sound business decisions related to exploiting prime markets, focusing product development and supporting requests for relief from the dumping of foreign goods in Canada. Compliance Through Partnership

The responsibility for compliance belongs to everyone: importers, exporters, various service providers and CBSA.

Most effective approach is to work together.

Accurate trade information is key to:

The government in making decisions such as fiscal policy and the negotiation of favourable trade agreements.

The trade community in making sound business decisions related to exploiting prime markets, focusing product development and supporting requests for relief from the dumping of foreign goods in Canada.

The CBSA’s “trade compliance continuum” acknowledges that there are various states of “compliance” and that different responses may be needed. For example: Where clients comply voluntarily, trade facilitation is often the best approach. Where non-compliance is identified, a mix of trade facilitation and verification provides clients with the actions that must be taken to become and stay compliant. In addition, to enforce compliance and provide a clear deterrent to non-compliance, sanctions such as administrative penalties, seizure and criminal prosecution are sometimes the most appropriate responses. Trade Compliance Continuum

The CBSA’s “trade compliance continuum” acknowledges that there are various states of “compliance” and that different responses may be needed.

For example:

Where non-compliance is identified, a mix of trade facilitation and verification provides clients with the actions that must be taken to become and stay compliant.

In addition, to enforce compliance and provide a clear deterrent to non-compliance, sanctions such as administrative penalties, seizure and criminal prosecution are sometimes the most appropriate responses.

The CBSA’s approach to compliance is intended to: Bring together individual compliance efforts in a comprehensive compliance management plan. Continue to include two primary processes: Measurement of overall compliance rates. Correction of identified non-compliance. Focus resources appropriately. Set priorities based on risk and address them through an appropriate mix of trade facilitation, verification and enforcement. Use results to further compliance efforts. Trade Compliance Strategies
