Single Window Initiative (SWI).

The CSCB, as part of CBSA’s BCCC OGD Subcommittee, recently participated on two webinars regarding the Single Window Initiative (SWI). The first webinar was specific to Health Canada requirements and the second to Transport Canada. Click to see the presentations.

Other webinars will follow, as Participating Government Agencies (PGAs – formerly OGDs) begin to identify the minimum amount of data required by them.

The SWI will provide clients with a single window through which they can electronically submit all information required to comply with all government import regulations. This information will be provided using the Integrated Import Declaration (IID).

The expected date for initial implementation is July 2014.
