Implementation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership

The Canada Border Services Agency issued a customs notice to provide information on the implementation of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) on December 30, 2018.

The Agency notes that not all CPTPP member countries have completed their domestic ratification process and identified an implementation date. As the remaining CPTPP member countries reach ratification and confirm an implementation date, a separate customs notice will be issued.

The agreement includes Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam.

With the exception of a few agricultural goods, the CPTPP will essentially eliminate the customs duties on all qualifying imports into Canada from a country for which the CPTPP is in force ("CPTPP country"), either immediately upon implementation of the agreement, or through a tariff phase-out.

The customs notice provides information on the agreement's tariff provisions, proof of origin and shipping requirements.
