eManifest implementation update

The following is excerpted from a 21 October 2013 news release by CBSA.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced today that eManifest requirements for highway and rail carriers will not be mandatory in fall 2013, due to timelines associated with regulatory processes.

The CBSA remains committed to providing clients at least 45 days advance notice of the eManifest mandatory compliance date to ensure a smooth transition to modernized, more efficient commercial processing at Canada’s borders. Updates regarding the status of the regulatory process will be made public when available.
