Introduction
• The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) considers the
involvement of stakeholders in the design of the Single Window
Initiative (SWI) to be critical to its success.
• Trade Stakeholders have the opportunity to provide input and
feedback on:
• Integrated Import Declaration including data requirements;
• Proposed enhanced commodity identifiers;
• Border Process Modernization.
3
Single Window Initiative
•
CBSA-led initiative to provide trade with a single entry point for the advance
electronic reporting of import information required to satisfy CBSA and
Participating Government Agencies (PGA) requirements.
•
Involves the development of a more efficient, effective and integrated
approach to collecting and consolidating Government of Canada (GoC)
advance commercial information required on all imported goods.
•
Responds to calls for action by the trade community to simplify processes at
the border by reducing paper burden and integrating PGA requirements into
current CBSA import processes.
•
Provides integrated solutions for commercial processing that balance the
needs of the GoC with today’s globally competitive business environment.
4
Business Process Modernization
Better quality, more accurate and more timely information
collected through the IID will:
• Eliminate manual and paper-based processes required for
border compliance;
• Convert border processes to electronic format;
• Allow PGAs to more accurately and efficiently identify
their regulated shipments; and
• Move compliance verification activities to an appropriate
point in the import process (e.g. post-border), allowing for
expedited border processes.
5
Integrated Import Declaration
• The IID will be developed as an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
message
• Enhance existing CBSA release processes to include all
Government of Canada (GOC) data required for the
importation of commercial goods;
• Include only data that is essential to make border-related
decisions;
• Eliminate the requirement for paper documents at the
border where possible;
• Enable trade to use product identification methods
available within their supply chains;
• World Customs Organization (WCO) compliant; and
• Aligns with CBSA eManifest ATD requirements.
6
IID Benefits
•
Transmission of PGA import data through IID provides benefits to Trade
and Government through:
– Elimination of presentation of paper License, Permit, Certificate or Other
(LPCOs) at Border;
– Elimination of redundant data; e.g., no longer need to identify Importer of
goods multiple times through various processes (Permit application,
CBSA import process, permit verification, post-border verification);
– Meet verification of Licenses/Certificates (e.g., Establishment Licences,
Market/Product Authorization) requirements by presentation of data
element(s) in IID; and
– Improved data quality resulting in more certainty at Border
• Issuance of RFIs/rejects to allow re-transmission and acceptance
prior to the goods arrival at Border.
7
Import Data Elements
• Data elements include the CBSA Release and Participating
Government Agencies (PGA) Admissibility / Release
requirements.
• No new information will be required beyond that which is required
today in the importation processes
o Ongoing analysis is anticipated to lead to a further reduction.
• The PGA requirements are in most cases commodity-related (e.g.
commodity lot number, commodity physical state, etc.).
• New fields have been included to capture authorization
information where still required (e.g. permit number, license
number, etc.).
• Fields to capture commodity identification enhancements.

SWI Electronic Commerce Client Requirements

• The SWI IID ECCRD provides external system users
with comprehensive information of requirements related
to the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) SWI IID system

• XML and EDIFACT formats;
– Technical systems requirements;
– Certification and Testing requirements.
9
Product/Goods Identification Opportunity
• Identifying goods using internationally accepted, wellmaintained and industry-accessible identifiers will benefit
both PGAs and trade.
• More accurate identification of goods allows PGAs to
facilitate low risk shipments across the border.
• Sector-specific identifiers are being considered such
as:
– Global Trade Item Number (GTIN)
– Chemical Abstract Service Registry Number (CAS)
– Taxonomical Serial Number (TSN)
• It is anticipated that multiple identifiers may replace
existing permit information and reduce the overall
amount of data required by industry at the border.
10
Transport Canada (TC) Road Safety
•
The Motor Vehicle Safety Act regulates the manufacture and importation of motor
vehicles to reduce the risk of death and injury, and damage to property and the
environment. The Act requires that vehicles of any prescribed class that are
manufactured in Canada for the Canadian market or imported into Canada be certified
to Canadian federal safety standards
•
Subsection 7(2) of the Act provides an exception whereby vehicles purchased at the
retail level in the U.S. that are not in full compliance with the Canadian standards may
be imported into Canada, provided the vehicles were originally manufactured to
comply with all applicable U.S. Safety standards and can be modified to comply with
the Canadian standards
– Once modified, the vehicles must be inspected by a designated authority of TC.
– In this regard, TC contracted with a private company to establish the Registrar of
Imported Vehicles (RIV) program to develop and operate a system of inspection
and certification of vehicles imported from the United States.
•
Forms 1 and 3 are paper based and must be completed at the border at the time of
vehicle import resulting in hard copy clearance by CBSA.
– The Forms must then be mailed and faxed to the RIV for processing (time
sensitive)
11
Categories
•
New Canadian certified vehicles with recognized importers and
manufacturers (mfg)
– Exempt: refers to the vehicles imported by the Canadian importers listed
in Appendix F of the D-memorandum
• No Form 1 is required
– Pre-Clearance Program: refers to the vehicles that fall into the
manufacturer/importer/vehicle class list referred to in Appendix G of the
D-memorandum
• Form 1 is required
– Case by Case (CBC): refers to low volume commercial importers of
Canadian spec vehicles that are not part of the pre-clearance program
• Form 1 is required
12
Categories
•
To assist importers in determining the admissibility of vehicles sold in the
U.S. a "List of Vehicles Admissible from the U.S." is produced by TC.
– Appendix E of the D-memorandum
•
This list is based on information provided to TC by the manufacturers and
importers of those vehicles. Only those vehicle manufacturers and the
makes and models of vehicles listed in the "ADMISSIBLE" column of the
tables for each class of vehicle may be imported into Canada.
– If a particular company is not listed, the vehicles it manufactures
cannot be imported.
•
Only U.S. specification vehicles, purchased at the retail level in the U.S.
can be imported via the RIV program
– Form 1 required
•
Vehicles imported for parts
– Form 3 required
13
CMVSS Vehicle - Appendix F
– Appendix F, (currently located at http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/saf-secsur/7/pcl-lir/A-F/menu.aspx ) to be created as a table by CBSA that can
be queried by CBSA to determine if importer is an approved Appendix F
pre-cleared importer (similar to CBSA’s Trusted Trader program)
– The table located on this website is maintained by TC as companies are
added or removed from the approved exempt Appendix F status
– Companies on Appendix F may either be given a Unique Numerical
Identifier by CBSA or, CBSA may determine to use the first 9 digits of
the importers unique business number.
• Whichever scenario is used, these numbers will be included on the table
mentioned above
14

contain:
• Approved Canadian importer business Name and business number,
associated for vehicle import with the specific manufacturer.

IID Business Views
The IID Message structure consists of three main levels:
• Declaration Level:
– used to provide information that pertains to the entire declaration/document.
• Goods Group Level:
– to provide "shipment/invoice " level information that pertains to various defined
pieces of the information found at lower levels of the message structure, such as
Commodity/line level information.
• Commodity Detail Level:
– to provide the traditional "line level" goods item detail.
• The IID message structure aligns with the CBSA’s eManifest ATD
message structure to support CBSA commercial process
modernization efforts.
