For Canada’s customs brokers and importers, the identification of Secondary Notify Parties (SNPs) and the use of Manifest Forward are critical to the successful implementation of eManifest. The Canadian Society of Customs Brokers (CSCB) is implementing a Customs Broker/Importer Search tool to facilitate and encourage the use of Manifest Forward.
Carriers and freight forwarders will have the option of nominating customs brokers to receive either or both Cargo (Manifest) data and notices. In order to do so, the carrier must include the customs broker’s Account Security Number (ASN) in the SNP field and indicate what the broker should receive.
The Customs Broker/Importer Search tool will allow carriers to look up Account Security Numbers, as well as other important contact information about the customs broker.
The benefits to our industry are clear: you will receive the earliest possible indication that goods are enroute, allowing you to prepare either the ATD, or ATD/PARS.
The following are the data elements we require from you:
- Account Security Number
- Port of entry code(s)
- Primary phone number for Manifest Forward
- Alternate phone number
- Primary email for Manifest Forward
- Alternate email
- Contact names for Manifest Forward
