Administrative Monetary Penalty System
Person (importer) failed to transmit release information to the correct customs office.
|1st||$250 Footnote *|
|3rd and subsequent||$750|
- Penalty basis
- Per shipment
- Retention period
- 36 months
Non-compliance occurs when a person (importer) transmits the release request to an office other than where goods are to be presented for entry into Canada.
An electronic release client transmits their post-arrival service option (i.e. Release on Minimum Documentation -RMD) to the Accelerated Commercial Release Operations Support System (ACROSS) with an incorrect customs office code.
For example, an importer or agent transmits the RMD release request to customs office “X” but the goods arrived at a different location. This may result in information not being available for targeting at the appropriate location.
This does not apply to pre-arrival service options.
