CERS – B13 Preparation

Prior to registering for any export reporting method, ensure that you have a valid business number. Determine if you require an export declaration and/or a permit, certificate or license and then classify your exports.

The Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) was decommissioned on September 30, 2020.
There are currently two new methods available to submit an export declaration.

The CAED has been replaced by the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS), which is a free, web-based, self-service portal that enables exporters to submit electronic declarations and Summary Reporting Program monthly reports to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). This method is recommended by CBSA.
The second method is through G7 Electronic Data Interchange Export Reporting (G7 EDI).
