IID/CADEX provides a direct connection to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for the release and clearance of imports and Participating Government Agencies (PGA) shipments. You can send declarations online directly to CBSA and other controlling agencies. Within minutes, you can receive the responses and proceed to clear your cargo.

Integrated Import Declaration (IID) – IID is a detailed single electronic report used by importers and brokers for CBSA and PGAs import declarations and release of goods. A component of Canada's "Single Window Initiative" (SWI), IID will replace the existing Pre-Arrival Review System (PARS) and Release on Minimum Documentation (RMD) release processes. 

Customs Automated Data Exchange (CADEX) –  CADEX is used by importers and brokers to prepare and file B3 final accounting documents electronically with the CBSA. Through CADEX, participants are able to receive automated Accounts Receivable Ledger (ARL) statements, tariff and exchange rate file updates as well as notifications of release and overdue releases

Accounts Receivable Ledger (ARL) The Accounts Receivable Ledger (ARL) is the first phase of the CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management (CARM) project. ARL provides enhanced electronic Daily Notices and Monthly Statement of Accounts.

Deployment 4 (D4) Notices are designed to increase transparency and automation of pre- and post-arrival notices for trade participants. The eManifest notices include completeness, arrival, and other status notices.  eManifest notices will be based on the overall shipment status.
