New Canadian export reporting system will replace CAED in 2020

In a Customs Notice issued this week the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced that the Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) program software will be replaced by a new export reporting system, the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS), by January 2020.

The CBSA and Statistics Canada have mutually agreed to retire CAED due to its aging technology. CERS is being designed by the CBSA to meet current export program requirements while providing flexibility to allow for future enhancements. The CBSA says it will engage industry stakeholders to seek feedback on the system design and roll-out strategy.

CERS will be a web-based solution that will enable exporters to report their export goods. It includes the same data requirements as CAED and will be designed to accept summary reporting of eligible goods.

The CBSA will be implementing the new system in mid-2019, in order to allow a six month transition period for the onboarding of all current CAED users. There will be more information on both the CBSA and Statistics Canada websites available to exporters about the transition of export reporting from CAED to the new reporting system prior to its implementation.
