New verification targets from the Canada Border Services Agency

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) posted on its website the list of goods subject to its verification priorities for the start of 2017.

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.

The following items were added in the tariff classification category:

• Olive Oil
• Photographic Film
• Stone Blocks and Slabs
• Railway Equipment
• Sausages and Similar Products

Other items have remained on the list as they have entered a second or third stage of verification.
