Canada and Australia to recognize each other's trusted trader programs

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced the signature of a Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) with Australia's Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) regarding their respective Trusted Trader programs.

This MRA signifies that the CBSA's Partners in Protection program members will be recognized by, and receive trade facilitation benefits from, the DIBP. The CBSA will reciprocate by providing similar benefits to members of the Australian Trusted Trader program.

In addition to the MRA with Australia, the CBSA has signed MRAs with the Customs Administrations of Japan, Mexico, Singapore, South Korea and the United States.

Australia has also entered into other mutual recognition arrangements, with Korea's Customs Service and the Customs and Excise Department of Hong Kong.
