We are currently experiencing a full CBSA system outage. The CBSA is unable to receive all incoming data or send outbound messages such as acknowledgements, reject messages and notices E.g. RNS, Completeness Notices.  Also, the eManifest Portal and Canadian export reporting system portal are currently unavailable.

We are working to resolve this problem and currently do not have an estimated time of resolution.  We will update this message as soon as more information is available. We regret the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.

Action Required
Please refer to the contingency procedures outlined below or be prepared to resume transmission once the system is available.

For highway carriers, if you are proceeding to the border during this outage, please ensure all drivers are provided with the correct paperwork to present at arrival.  The CBSA will accept paper documentation during an outage and no AMPS penalties will be issued for ACI related infractions resulting from this outage.
