UPDATE: CARM Release 2 Delayed
The CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) project is a multi-year initiative that will modernize how the CBSA assesses imported goods and manages revenue. Once fully implemented, CARM will streamline and automate business processes and offer online self-service tools to help importers and exporters do business in Canada.
To date, the project has successfully launched its first two releases in January (Release 0) and May (Release 1) of 2021. The third release, Release 2, is the largest and most complex release.
At this time, the CBSA has shared they do not intend to proceed with the implementation of CARM Release 2 any time before January 2023.
In the meantime, if you are looking for more information about the initiative and the CCP, we highly recommend you view the recording of our webinar, CARM: A Primer. We cover topics such as timelines, bonds, and more!
