Note

This processing schedule will vary during the week of the due date (approximately the 15th of each month). Regardless of the day of the week, CAR will process statistical submissions received on the due date that night. Then the following night, CAR will load newly accepted data to the statistical files, processes corrections and updates the on-line system. The cession, accounting, and MAIP placement record loads may run on different days than normally scheduled if needed.

For example: The January 2010 shipment is due at CAR on March 15, 2010 (which is a Monday). CAR will run a front-end on Monday night, followed by the statistical load (and corresponding correction load and update to the on-line system) on Tuesday, March 16 (one day earlier). Most likely, the cession and accounting loads will run on Wednesday, March 17 (one day earlier).
