The Canadian Automated Export Declaration (CAED) application was jointly developed by Statistics Canada and the Canada Border Services Agency.
The 2017 version of CAED will expire on January 31, 2018, after which time only the 2018 version will be valid. The 2018 version will be the last update to CAED and will be valid until it is retired in January 2020.
The CAED program will be replaced by a new export reporting system, the Canadian Export Reporting System (CERS), by January 2020. The CBSA and Statistics Canada have mutually agreed to retire CAED due to its aging technology. CERS is being designed by the CBSA to meet current export program requirments while providing flexibility to allow for future enhancements. The CBSA will engage industry stakeholders to seek feedback on the system design and roll-out strategy.
This Windows application features drop-down menus, dialog boxes that remember input, and keyword searches based on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (H.S.) at the 8-digit level.
This application enables you to complete an export declaration, print it, and then submit it online, either by FTP or in an encrypted email attachment.
This free application is available to exporters and their agents (or service providers). A current Business Number (company name and address) that is registered for Exporting with the Canada Revenue Agency is all that is needed to apply for the CAED software.
