Marine Risk Assessment Notices

There are different types of risk assessment notices that may be issued.

The CBSA system will send "Do Not Load"; "Do Not Unload"; "Hold" and "Cancellation" messages to the relevant parties via the same EDI route as the incoming transmission. These messages will reference the cargo control number, supplementary reference number, container number, and conveyance reference number, as applicable.

The following chart illustrates the types of messages, the conditions of the message, the parties who will receive the message, and the timeframes for issuance of the risk assessment message.
