The Customs Self Assessment (CSA) program was launched in December 2001. This initiative fundamentally re-engineers the customs commercial process by partnering the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) with pre-approved traders. CSA improves the CBSA's understanding of its commercial clients and it eliminates many of the traditional import impediments, which means processing low risk U.S. shipments more quickly.
