AMPS Under The Microscope: The Continual Evolution

The Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS) is a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) sanctions regime that authorizes the CBSA to issue civil monetary penalties for the violation of CBSA’s trade and border legislation in the commercial stream. AMPS are intended to deter non-compliance and have been issued by CBSA for the last 20 years. Penalties are issued for non-compliance found either at the border at the time of importation or through post-release verification of company records. When a CBSA officer finds that a client has not complied with their obligations under the Customs Act, an AMPS penalty will be applied. The CBSA officer identifies the infraction and selects the appropriate contravention from the AMPS Master Penalty Document.
