Export Reporting – Amending or Voiding Export Declarations

Customs Notice 20-30 (Export reporting – amending or voiding export declarations) outlines the obligations and processes to amend and void previously submitted export declarations in the event that an exporter, customs services provider or SRP participant is required to modify an export declaration that was reported using one of the now eliminated reporting methods.

Paper B13As were eliminated on July 1, 2020.  Summary Reporting Program uploads have moved into the new Customs Export Reporting System (CERS) and CAED is scheduled to sunset on September 30, 2020.

On June 30, 2020, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) eliminated the Export Declaration form B13A and no longer accepts this form. In addition, the electronic File Transfer (eFT) used to submit Summary Reports to Statistics Canada is no longer available.

All export declarations and Summary Reporting Program (SRP) monthly reports must be submitted electronically through the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS) Portal.

The Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) system will remain a reporting option until its decommissioning on September 30, 2020.

The G7 Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) export reporting method remains unchanged.

This customs notice outlines the obligations and processes to amend and void previously submitted export declarations in the event that an exporter, customs services provider or SRP participant is required to modify an export declaration that was reported using one of the eliminated reporting methods.

Amendments and voids should be submitted to the CBSA as soon as it is apparent that the export declaration must be amended or voided, and within the following specified timeframes by reporting method:

a. Paper B13A – within 90 days from the time of the original submission
b. SRP eFT &ndash within 30 days of discovering that one or more changes are required or being notified by the CBSA, and up to two years from the time of the original submission
c. CAED – within 90 days from the time of the original submission

Amendments and voids must also be submitted if the goods have not been exported.

The complete Customs Notice and details on how to amend these export declarations are provided on the Canada Border Services Agency website.
