    Found this data extremely helpful in analyzing where we stood in the big picture. Although we will continue to maintain a zero tolerance to penalties, it is reassuring to know that there are bigger issues we are not involved with. This type of statistic, on an ongoing basis, would be helpful.

It is helpful to learn about the public’s experience with Government of Canada datasets and to know that they provide value to Canadians. The National Administrative Monetary Penalty dataset will be updated on a biannual basis".

    Studying International Trade and Customs. Found this document extremely helpful in ensuring compliance with all regulations. It's important to see the benefit of compliance in terms of monetary gains. Will review and analyze these documents on a regular basis, to be able to vouch for full AMPS compliance in all my future work places.

    This is unhelpful for the importing community. CBSA used to publish summaries of AMPS data but stopped for period after 2011. Please bring that back.

    Hi John, Here's the response from the data owner at CBSA: “Thank you for your feedback. We are publishing the AMPS dataset in its “raw” form, giving you the ability create summaries and charts which meet your needs. Our focus is on evaluating and releasing more datasets instead of creating reports which may or may not answer everyone’s questions. Please let us know if the dataset does not answer your relevant question(s) as we would like to continue to improve the datasets being published by the CBSA.”
