CBSA Verification Priorities for January 2019

CBSA has posted its semi-annual list of verification priorities for tariff classification, valuation and origin for January 2019. A second list is expected in July.

Of the many items listed for tariff verification, there are several which were the subject of verification in much earlier rounds and have now re-appeared. These are:

Hair Dryers and Electric Smoothing Irons, Heading 85.16
Mountings, Fittings and Similar Articles, Heading 83.02
Nails and Similar Articles of Iron or Steel, Heading 73.17
Castors with Mountings of Base Metal, Heading 83.02
Mineral Waters and Aerated Waters, Heading 22.01
Gloves, Headings 39.26 and 42.03
Spent Fowl, Headings 02.07, 16.01 and 16.02
Bags, 42.02
Mountings and Fittings, Suitable for Furniture, Heading 83.02
Air Heaters and Hot Air Distributors, Heading 73.22
Flashlights and Miners’ Safety Lamps, Heading 85.13
Stone Table and Counter Tops, Heading 94.03
Disposable and Protective Gloves, Subheadings 3926.20.91 and 4015.19

Chapters 2 and 4 remain on the tariff classification list for Import Permit Numbers. The risk identified is that imported goods could be classified under “within access commitment” tariff items within Chapter 2 (meat of bovine animals and poultry) and Chapter 4 (dairy products), without the required import permit number on the declaration.

With respect to valuation, there are two items:

Apparel, Chapters 61 and 62
Footwear, Chapter 64

For origin, there are also two items:

T-Shirts, Heading 61.09
Bedding and Drapery, Headings 63.01, 63.02 and 63.03
