CFIA Clarifies Rules for IID Coming Into Effect on January 1, 2019

: General

Clarification from CFIA on New Integrated Import Declaration (IID) Process Effective January 1 2018-11-05

Dear Valued Customer,

As of January 1, 2019, all importers and customs brokers who declare imports to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) must be certified to use a new import declaration process, the Integrated Import Declaration (IID).
 
The IID provides commercial importers/brokers with a single portal to submit all import information and documents required to meet federal government import regulations, and obtain an admissibility decision electronically. Rather than having to send the same import declaration to multiple parties, the IID is submitted to the CBSA for validation and the information is transmitted to all appropriate Partnering Government Agencies (PGAs). A single release decision is then made and shared with the party that submitted the IID and to any party that subscribes to the Release Notification System (RNS).
 
To become certified to use the new declaration process, customs brokers and importers should contact the CBSA‘s Technical Commercial Client Unit:
Those who use a service provider should contact their provider to discuss the testing process and how to get involved.
 
Two existing Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) service options currently used to declare CFIA regulated imports, called Other Government Department (OGD) Pre-Arrival Review System (PARS) and Release on Minimum Documentation (RMD), will be decommissioned for CFIA clients on April 1, 2019.
 
As well, after the decommissioning of OGD release options 463 (EDI PARS) and 471 (EDI RMD), mandatory use of the IID will be implemented on a gradual basis. After April 1, 2019, the only available release service option for goods regulated by CFIA, Natural Resources Canada and Transport Canada will be the IID. Goods regulated by the remaining PGAs may be released using the IID or service option 125 (EDI PARS) or service option 257 (EDI RMD).
 
For more information about the IID, refer to the SWI-IID webpage.
 
To stay up-to-date, sign up for the “Imports: AIRS, EDI and NISC updates and notices” email notification service on the CFIA website.
 
If you have questions, contact CFIA.
