The Newest CBSA Initiative

Partners in Compliance (PIC) is the newest compliance and supply chain initiative of the Canada Border Services Agency.

PIC builds on the principles of the Customs Self Assessment (CSA) program by providing an opportunity for approved CSA importers to voluntarily demonstrate that their business systems, internal controls and self-testing processes are effective and reliable at ensuring trade program compliance. In return, Customs confers benefits that enhance business certainty and reduce government intrusion including:

  • Removal from the post-release verification pool.
  • Removal of monetary penalties as a first response to occurrences of non compliance.
  • A unique and exclusive partnership agreement with the CBSA with expanded client service benefits.
