114 ETA CANNOT BE MORE THAN 30 DAYS

This error happens when an A6 with an ETA set in the past is transmitted to customs. Canadian Customs only accepts A6 submissions with ETA dates as the current or future dates.

There are 2 possibilities for this error code. The first is the data entry error. The ETA of a discharge port is incorrectly entered in the vessel schedule by a user. To fix this error, ETA just needs updating and the A6 can be re-transmitted for acceptance. In case of late submission, the A6 needs to be submitted as a hard copy at a local customs office.

 

R27 CONVEYANCE ID NOT FOUND

When an inbound ship arrives at the first Canada port, the ship carrier (shipping line) or its agent will need to transmit a Conveyance Arrival Certification Message (CACM) electronically to Canadian Customs (ACI).

This error happens when a CACM has been transmitted before the submission of an A6. Canadian Customs expects to receive the electronic A6 prior to CACM. The tricky part is that if the A6 is still under the rejection status, the CACM will be likely rejected with this error code as well. In order to fix this error, the A6 must receive a “Confirmation” response from Canadian Customs first. Only then will the CACM be able to be transmitted for acceptance.

 

473 DEPARTURE DATE CANNOT BE GREATER THAN EXPIRY DATEcertexpirydate

You may receive a rejection with error code 473 when transmitting an A6 (Conveyance General Declaration) to Canadian Customs

This rejection means that a ship certificate—such as for Ship Sanitation Control Exemption, Safety of Ship, Load Line, etc.—has expired by the time of your transmission. You need to check these ship certificate dates in your vessel setup, update them accordingly, then re-transmit the A6. If this is not the case, try comparing the ship certificate expiry dates with the ship departure dates in the vessel schedule. If a ship certificate expiry date is earlier than a departure date, the A6 will also be rejected.

It is very important to keep your ship certificate dates up-to-date, especially the ship sanitation certificate as it is valid for a maximum period of 6 months. Canadian customs is very strict with these certificates and does not hesitate to impose penalty on non-compliance.
