It will be anticipated that importers and low value carriers (who don’t have carrier codes) will be inquiring about how to obtain one as CBSA is set to expire the 77YY generic code at the end of March. Below outlines the process and required documents
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) requires these documents in order to process a non-bonded carrier code application:
* Application form (bsf329-7) – Form Link bsf329-7 – Highway
* Proof of ownership documents
o Documents may include articles of incorporation, business registration documents, or any documents notarized by the company’s respective province or state.
o Sole proprietorships must submit a photocopy of government issued photo ID with company name indicated on the copy if different from proprietor’s name.
