Free and Secure Trade


Free and Secure Trade

The Free and Secure Trade (FAST) program is a joint United States-Canadian program between the Canada Border Services Agency and the United States Customs and Border Protection. The FAST initiative offers pre-authorized importers, carriers and drivers expedited clearance for eligible goods, building on what Canada previously implemented under their Customs Self Assessment (CSA) program. [ [http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/import/fast/faq-e.html Free and Secure Trade (FAST) - Frequently asked questions] ] In French language, FAST is referred to as "EXPRES - Expéditions rapides et sécuritaires".
