Revised AMPS penalties

Marc Filion, CTCS / CCS – Director, Customs Consulting

Dear client,

CBSA has revised penalties C080 to C083 and C350 to C353 and updated their Master Penalty Document. The revision includes a new penalty basis per issue of $150.00 to a maximum  of $5000.00 for first level penalties. The term “per issue ” applies to each uncorrected error regardless of how often the same error is repeated on the B3 declarations. These changes are now posted on the following CBSA’s website link :

AMPS Master Penalty Document.

If you have questions regarding these changes, please contact our Customs Consulting Service to obtain more information or assistance.
