Buckland has received notice from the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers (CSCB) regarding a delay in the upcoming decommission of Other Government Departments (OGD) service options Pre Arrival Release System (PARS) & Release on Minimal Documentation (RMD).
The decommission, associated with the Single Window Initiative, was originally scheduled for April 1, 2018 and Buckland has been well prepared for this change well ahead of the scheduled date. The CSCB has assured their members that the new date will be communicated to members when this information is made available.
The CBSA’s Single Window Initiative streamlines the sharing of commercial import data between the Government of Canada and the import community. It balances the needs of government departments and agencies with today’s globally competitive business environment. Along with the CBSA, there are nine participating government departments and agencies representing 38 government programs.
