Dilas International is a flexible independent Customs brokerage company and can deliver a personalized service matching the unique requirements of the importing community.
Being a licensed Customs broker with a national bond posted with the CBSA (Canada Border Service Agency) we take care of Customs clearance nationwide at all Canadian Customs offices using such EDI tools of the CBSA as Accelerated Commercial Release Operational Support System (ACROSS) including Pre-Authorized Review System (PARS) and Release on Minimum Documentation (RMD) options, and Customs Automated Data Exchange (CADEX). Dilas International is a proud corporate member of the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers.
We guarantee to our clients electronic submission of a Customs entry to the CBSA within an hour of receiving a complete set of documents for an import shipment by fax or e-mail.
So great to know there are no hidden fees. What I guestimated to be the cost of brokering from your fees chart worked out to be exactly what I was charged. Thanks again.

The importer must supply CBSA with certifiable proof of their corporate information, business activities, key products, and information on any Canadian divisions to be approved for the program. Once importers have successfully completed this step, they must demonstrate that their business systems, books, and records have the necessary auditable trails, internal controls, and linkages.
In a non-CSA environment, a notice that goods have been released by customs acts as the accounting trigger and goods must be accounted for within a particular time from the date of release. With CSA, CSA clients are not notified that their goods have been released. Instead, customs will rely on the CSA importer’s internal system to trigger accounting. In the CSA program, the date that goods are received by the CSA importer is considered to be the date of release.
The last part of the application process requires the importer to sign an undertaking, or agreement, with CBSA. This undertaking must state the following:
- the start date;
- the importer’s obligations;
- the accounting option selected;
- importer-specific operational conditions, including any conversion activities for outstanding (pre-CSA) releases; and
- action plans to improve compliance.
