Customs Notice 15-035 — Voluntary Disclosure of Unreported Goods Transiting Through the U.S. 

It has come to the CBSA’s attention that a large number of businesses have been exporting goods to Mexico and other countries, transiting through the U.S. in the highway mode, without declaring them to the Agency.

Goods transiting through the U.S. to a subsequent destination for consumption must be reported on an export declaration. Because the ultimate destination of the goods is a country other than the U.S., they must be reported if their value is CAN$2,000 or more.

The CBSA is offering a six-month grace period, from December 1, 2015 to June 1, 2016, to companies who wish to voluntarily disclose exported shipments that transited through the U.S. prior to the issuance of this customs notice that should have been reported, but were not. Companies that report eligible unreported goods using this process will not be penalized.
