The CBSA Assessment and Revenue Management program (CARM) is expected to move into Release 2 in 2023. Are you ready?

If you have not registered yet, consider this your reminder to do so—and soon!
All importers must register in the CCP before Release 2 (R2) happens. While you might glance at the calendar and think, “Okay, I have 10 months before R2,” it’s important to remember that registration is only the first of several things to put in place in order to be ready for R2.
When it comes to being ready for CARM, the more prepared you are, the better your experience will be. Along with attending the webinars above, consider reviewing these informative posts we shared when CARM first came on the scene:
