BORDER PERIMETER VISION MEETING WITH

U.S. AMBASSADOR JACOBSON

February 17, 2011

Can/Am BTA Recommended Essentials to be in the Vision:

(All were subsequently included in the Action Plan or implemented.)

Economics will be determining Border Management. Budget cuts to CBP and CBSA will impact heavily. Security efforts are not likely to be reduced thus COMMON SENSE and REALITY are needed to MORE EFFECTIVELY AND WITH LESS COST TO GOVERNMENT AND TRADE STAKEHOLDERS EXPEDITE KNOWN LOW-RISK TRUSTED TRADER SHIPMENTS AND TRUSTED TRAVELER CROSSINGS.

Detailed specifics for a majority of the following contained in COORDINATED CLEARANCE- POINT OF DEPARTURE DETERMINATION document presented.

8 SPECIFIC BORDER ISSUE IMPROVEMENTS WITH SOLUTIONS

8 SPECIFICS BORDER ISSUE IMPROVEMENTS WITH SOLUTIONS

ENTRY-EXIT Canadian Entry at land border become US Exit match and vice versa.

Save $ billions versus US Exit Booth construction and staffing.

Avoid major US Exiting Grid Lock. US provide Readers to PIL’s.

EXPEDITE LOW-RISK Upgrade FAST to Modified Green Lane

Trusted Trader (CSA, C-TPAT, PIP) access to Primary Inspection.

Eliminate duplicate Inspection at Land Border by risk targeting

at departure.

Peace Bridge Truck Pre-processing Canadian Side - Pre-process not Pre-clear by US.

EARLY DELIVERABLE saves $300 Million

Full descriptive Slide Deck Handout given.

Biometric check of foreign visitors prior to boarding offshore so NO non low-risk people can reach US or Canadian soil.

Issue RFID Vicinity Canadian Passport Companion Card for land border crossing.

Saves 24 seconds per person inspection time. Equates to

saving 200,000 hours wait time by Canadian cardholders and

200,000 hours reduced Officer inspection time EACH for CBSA

and CBP Primary Inspection Booth time.

Develop Joint or Cross Designation for 2 way Inspection at low volume rural crossings.

Streamline current excessive Border Regulations in Partnership with Industry.

TSA recognize NEXUS at US airport passenger inspections. NEXUS is proven low CATSA does at Canadian major airports.

Detailed specifics for a majority of the above contained in COORDINATED CLEARANCE- POINT OF DEPARTURE DETERMINATION document presented.

Beyond The Border Specifies:

Economic Benefits

  • Enhanced and convergent Canadian and U.S. cargo security programs and cooperation with international partners to enhance global supply chain security will:

    • Optimize efficiency of offshore cargo clearingby providing joint responses to threats; thus enhancing supply chain security and accelerating the legitimate flow of cargo between Canada and the U.S.

    • Provide greater consistency and predictability in the processes; each country assesses risk at the perimeter and conducts examination on behalf of the other country that will enable expedited clearance of cargo that proceeds to cross the Canada / U.S. land border.

    • Improve economic competitiveness due to reduced examinations and/or re-inspections and associated costs, as well as reduced waiting times at the border. “CHECK ONCE ACCEPT TWICE”

Coordinated clearance point of departure determination

Beyond The Border Specifies:

Economic Benefits

Harmonization of pre-arrival data requirements for all stakeholders and alternate processes and approaches for Trusted Trader participants.

  • Data harmonization will mean streamlining the requirements and reducing complexity for trade to provide the same information to both Agencies; thereby reducing the compliance burden on industry

  • Consistency in data requirements will decrease the likelihood of errors, resulting in higher compliance rates, and therefore, fewer data corrections and fewer delays at the border.

  • Harmonizing data elements will allow for increased accuracy in risk assessments based on common data elements, thus expediting processing of low risk goods.

  • Reduced costs to industry conducting business across the border by implementing, where practicable, common practices and streamlined procedures for customs processing of Trusted Trader participants.

Beyond the Border Perimeter Action Plan

The Pre-clearance Agenda

  • Canada and the United States (U.S.) will negotiate, by December, 2012, a pre-clearance agreement for the land, marine and rail modes to provide the legal framework and reciprocal authorities necessary for the CBSA and CBP to effectively carry out their missions in the other country.

  • Canada and the U.S. will launch, by September, 2012, a land cargo pre-inspection pilot in at least one location in Canada.

Defining Success

  • Canada and the United States (U.S.) will screen and identify travelers at the earliest point possible.

  • Canada will implement the electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), to improve screening of all visa-exempt foreign nationals, and Interactive Advance Passenger Information (IAPI) to make “board/no-board” decisions on all travelers flying to Canada prior to departure.

    • These initiatives will mirror measures taken in the U.S. through its Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) and Advance Passenger Information System Quick Query (AQQ) systems.

  • IAPI will push the CBSA’s risk management processes away from the North American Perimeter.

    • Non bona fide travelers will be identified prior to departure.

Access to the Plaza and the Primary inspection booth: AT A LAND PORT

The current Monte Carlo uncontrolled random arrival (first come first serve) of trucks approaching land border Port plazas and Primary inspection booths within prohibits optimizing the border crossing process and penalizes those who have made the considerable effort and investment to comply with specified Trusted Trader programs to achieve known low-risk status that promised but have never yet delivered meaningful reductions in their border crossing process.

The key to achieving public security along with economic security, while substantially reducing congestion and delay, is participation in known low-risk Trusted Trader and Trusted Traveler enrollment processes and pre-arrival information. Access to the primary inspection booths without having to queue using processes such as Traffic Streaming is essential.

Integrated Cross-Border Law Enforcement April 3, 2012 AT A LAND PORT

Integrated Enforcement

  • We intend to build on existing bilateral law enforcement programs to develop the next generation of integrated cross-border law enforcement operations thatleverage cross-designated officers and resources to jointly identify, assess, and interdict persons and organizations involved in transnational crime

    Can/Am BTA asks why not CBSA/CBP Officers @ Land Ports ?

45


Coordinated clearance point of departure determination

Integrated Cross-Border Law Enforcement April 3, 2012 AT A LAND PORT

Existing Border Enforcement Program:

Integrated Border Enforcement Team (IBET)

  • Bi-national partnership with joint governance

  • Canadian and U.S. law enforcement partners sharing intelligence and conducting joint operations

  • Enhances security along the shared border (between the ports of entry)

    Shiprider

  • Specially trained and cross-designated Canadian and U.S. law enforcement officers jointly crewing each other's vessels

  • Pilot projects conducted and evaluated (2005-2007), Framework Agreement signed in May 2009

  • Legislation required to ratify the Agreement

    Border Enforcement Security Team (BEST)

  • ICE-led multi-agency teams developed to identify, disrupt and dismantle criminal organizations posing significant threats to border security

  • Since 2008, four BESTs have been established on the Canada-U.S. border

Beyond The Border Specifies: AT A LAND PORT

The Action Plan Commitments

We Will:

  • Develop for each country an inventory of fees and charges at the border which sets out their purpose and legal basis, how they are collected, how much is collected, their intended use and the rationale for collecting them at the border.

  • Using an agreed methodology, Commission a disinterested third party to conduct an economic impact assessment of such fees, including their cumulative effect, on the competitive position of three economic sectors in Canada and the United States for which cross-border activity is important.

  • Public Safety Canada and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will produce and publish a joint Report on the above, which would be presented to Leaders and made available to the public by September 30, 2012.

  • Can/Am BTA Comment: No cash should be collected by Officers at border inspection.
