Mandatory Electronic Filing for B13A Documentation

For shipments containing restricted goods, or commercial goods valued at CAD $2,000 or more, destined to a country other than the U.S., Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands, an export declaration (B13A) must be completed and submitted prior to export.

Effective June 30, 2020, CBSA will no longer accept paper copies of the B13A and the export declaration must be filed electronically. CBSA is also replacing the Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) program with a new electronic reporting system called CERS.

CBSA will be contacting current CAED users with instructions on switching to CERS and additional information on the change as well as instructions for filing electronically can be found on the CBSA website: Click hereExternal Link / New Window.
