Canada Border Services Agency updates its verification targets
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) posted on its website a few changes to the list of goods which are currently subject to its verification priorities.
Through verifications the Agency assesses importers' compliance with CBSA administered legislation, determines compliance within industry sectors and assesses the integrity of trade data received from importers.
Verifications usually concern the origin of imported goods, their tariff classification and their value for duty.
CBSA's website identifies changes and/or additions which were made for the following items in the tariff classification category:
Furniture for Non-Domestic Purposes (Round 3 - new)
Footwear ($30 or more per pair) (Round 4 - new)
Articles of Plastics (Round 3 - new)
Parts of Lamps (Round 3 - new)
Safety Headgear (Round 4 - new)
Import Permit Numbers (Round 2 - new)
Parts of Machines and Mechanical Appliances (new)
