About this Webinar

With Release 1 of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) project now behind us, trade chain partners can begin to look forward to, and prepare for, Release 2, coming May 2022.

CARM’s Release 2 will bring significant changes to the way importers conduct commercial business. Understanding and preparing for these changes will help to ensure a smooth transition. The new financial security requirements for the Release Prior to Payment (RPP) program require special attention and advanced planning by importers.

Attend this webinar to gain a better understanding of Release 2 mandatory requirements, including:

  • Changes to payment options
  • Mandatory importer surety (bonds or cash deposits)

Who Should Attend?
