About this Webinar

The CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) project is a multi-year initiative with significant impact on accounting (the payment of duties and taxes to the CBSA) and compliance.

As part of CARM, the CBSA recently unveiled its Trade Culpability Framework, a strategy to promote voluntary self-compliance. To help keep importers up-to-date and informed, CBSA officials will join Livingston’s regulatory experts in a two-hour webinar, to discuss CBSA’s Trade Culpability Framework under CARM and what it means for Canadian importers.

Our speakers will also discuss CBSA’s compliance strategy and overarching vision, and their aims for voluntary self-compliance. Additionally, they’ll examine the concept of trade risk modeling and how it will impact importers and service providers.

Who Should Attend?

Individuals or companies who import commercial goods into Canada, and who are interested in learning more about CARM and the potential impact the project will have on their business.
