Release Notification System (RNS) & ACI eManifest Notices

Status Query and Warehouse Arrival Messages (WACM) 

What is RNS (Release Notification System)?

The Release Notification System (RNS) offers a timely and efficient notification of CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) release decisions by providing brokers, importers, carriers and warehouse operators with electronic messages. The CBSA instantly notifies RNS participants when a transaction is released and when a Pre-arrival Review System transaction is approved. Some common RNS messages received from CBSA include the following:

Goods Released
Goods required for examination - referred
Goods May Move, Detain at Destination (CFIA)
Declaration Accepted, Awaiting arrival of goods
Authorized to deliver – CSA Shipment
Declaration Accepted, Awaiting Customs Processing

Status Query

The status query message is used by the trade participant to receive the most recent status of a transaction from CBSA. The trade participant can send the CCN (Cargo Control Number) or the Custom’s Broker Entry Number to CBSA to receive back the most recent RNS status of the transaction

WACM – Warehouse Arrival Certification Message

The WACM (Warehouse Arrival Certification Message) is a notification that is sent when unreleased inland cargo arrives at the warehouse. WACM became mandatory on May 2015. Warehouse operators/owners who receive unreleased goods into their sufferance warehouses must transmit WACM

ACI eManifest Notices

The ACI eManifest Notices will eventually replace the RNS messages but for now clients are using RNS or ACI eManifest Notices or both sets of messages.
