CAED | Shippers And Receivers Did You Know?

The Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) Program was launched by Canada Border Services Agency, January 1st, 1998 as a fast, inexpensive and easy way of reporting your exported goods.

For those that a currently using CAED, there is a service patch for your current CAED Version. It is important to note that as of February 1st, 2012 that the 2011 version 11.00 is the only acceptable version of CAED.

For those not yet registered, for you convenience, there is a software demonstration provided at Statistics Canada for the CAED 2011 Version 11.00.It should be noted that some steamship agents will no longer submit the export documentation as there is a push to get exporters to be use the Canadian Export Declaration System (CAED), and thus saving you the shipper/receiver to have to present the export documentation in person at the appropriate designated export office.

CAED is a great tool because it reduces your company's exposure to the Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS). It is important to note that shipments that require permits, you can still submit electronically, however, you must submit a hard copy of the CAED (B13A), along with a hard copy of the export permit in person to the designated export office at the place of exit.
