Decommissioning Legacy OGD Release Service Options (SO463 and SO471)

By Pacific Customs Brokers, CBSA Mar 24, 2020

From CBSA

Clients Affected: All importers and brokers

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CBSA will be postponing the decommissioning of the legacy OGD release service options until a date later to be determined. Clients may continue using the SWI IID or the legacy service options (OGD-PARS, OGD-RMD) to obtain release of OGD regulated goods.

Clients that have on-boarded to the SWI IID (SO911) but continue to use the legacy OGD release service options (SO463 and SO471) may experience delays in the processing of their shipment. As such, clients that have completed the on-boarding process are encouraged to utilize the SWI IID (SO911) for all OGD release requests.
