CBSA Verification Priorities: January 2022


Are your goods on it?LatestNews_44699394_s

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) targets specific industries and products for extra attention at the border to ensure importers are compliant with requirements for tariff classification, product valuation and country of origin.

CBSA’s list of targeted verification priorities is updated on an ongoing basis. The current list, published January 7, 2022, is now available on the CBSA website.

It contains 19 types of goods targeted to ensure correct tariff classification and two types of goods identified for valuation. No goods are targeted for origin verifications at this time. 

Two new additions to the list are bicycle parts entering a third round of verification to make sure they are correctly classified within Heading 87.14, and parts for use with certain machinery of Chapter 84 are also entering a new, third round of verifications.

Please review the 2022 Verification Priorities list carefully to see if your goods are on it.

If you’re importing any of the targeted items, pay extra attention to your import practices and customs paperwork. Any errors or inconsistencies can result in extra duty and penalties, disruptions to your supply chain, border delays and loss of good importer status with CBSA.
