Commercial Cash Entry Processing System (CCEPS)
(Canada Customs) A Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) self-serve automated system designed to facilitate the document preparation process required for the clearance of commercial importations. Personal computers are located at counters in designated customs offices. Based on importation information that the importer inputs for goods, CCEPS calculates the applicable duties and taxes. It then generates a completed hard copy of Canadian Import Form B3. A Canadian customs officer enters the data from Form B3 into the Accelerated Commercial Release Operation Support System (ACROSS) system and forwards the form to the cashier. Once the importer has accounted for the goods, he or she receives a copy of the form stamped “duty paid” and can take delivery of goods.
