CN 20-02, Amendments to the Departmental Consolidation of the Customs Tariff

This is to advise of an amendment to the Departmental Consolidation of the Customs Tariff.

Effective January 10, 2020, Section Note XI of the Customs Tariff has been updated to give effect to Article 317 of the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, Short Supply Notes, as per Order in Council number, SOR 2020-10.

An amended version of the Departmental Consolidation of the Customs Tariff, reflecting this change, is published on the CBSA website.

Please note that the Order in Council, SOR 2020-10, will be published in the January 22, 2020 edition of the Canada Gazette.

For certainty regarding the tariff classification of a product, importers may request an advance ruling on tariff classification. Details on how to make such a request can be found in CBSA Memorandum D11-11-3 – Advance Rulings for Tariff Classification, which is found on the CBSA website.

While the Canada - U.S. border is now closed to non-essential traffic, it is still open for trade and commerce. We are committed to doing our part for global supply chains.

We are protecting the health and safety of our employees. They are working from home, except for critical functions that require certain equipment or managing paper/courier flow. In those cases we are following social distancing guidelines.

We are open and available to assist you, and key players in your supply chains. Our dedicated staff are available 24/7 and our brokerage and logistics experts are available to help you make adjustments to your supply chain, if necessary.

We encourage you to check out the government programs available to families, businesses, exporters and importers. And, while respecting the need for social distancing we encourage everyone, including our staff, to reach out and remain connected to family, friends, colleagues and customers.
