Non-compliance occurs when a person, including a freight forwarder to whom a carrier code is issued fails to immediately notify the CBSA of any change(s) in the legal or business name, merger/amalgamation or cessation of business that was initially provided in the application for their carrier code.
For purposes of this penalty, the term “immediately” is defined as the point in time in which the CBSA determines the legal or business name submitted by the carrier code holder is not accurate or up to date.
Non-compliance may occur:
- during an examination;
- as a result of a review of information provided by the carrier code holder during the import process; or
- during an audit of the carrier code holder’s books and records.
For failure to immediately notify CBSA of change(s) to the address, contact information (including email address) please refer to penalty C389.
