Customs Tariff 2017
If you have a problem accessing the below Tariff files, refer to our Document Formats page. If you find errors or omissions in those files, or continue to have difficulty opening them, report the problem.
- In preparation for the possible implementation of the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has updated its Tariff Code and Tariff Classification files with the CETA data, showing an effective date of June 15, 2017. However, please note that until CETA comes into force and the CBSA updates the Country Code file to reflect eligible countries, submissions claiming the benefits of a CETA tariff treatment will be rejected. The implementation date for CETA is still unknown.
- The files enable users to later install the T-2017-3 July 1, 2017 Tariff amendment package, which will provide rate updates on 59 tariff items relating to the existing Canada-EFTA Free Trade Agreement (i.e., the IT, NT & SLT tariff treatment) and the Information Technology Agreement Expansion, 2016. Details are available in Customs Notice 17-21.
- To avoid any system issues, the CBSA is advising clients to update their systems prior to the automatic download of T-2017-3 July 1 updates, scheduled for batch processing on June 30, 2017.
- In the past, the CBSA's Technical Commercial Client Unit (TCCU) has provided the Expiries in the form of "AA" records. Due to the size and magnitude of this particular file, the Expiries will be in the form of "GA" records. The updates will, as usual, be GA records.
