The Canada Border Services Agency updates its verification targets

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) posted on its website a few additions 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.

The following items were added in the tariff classification category:

 • Mineral Waters and Aerated Waters
 • Gloves
 • Pebbles, Limestone and Granules
 • Spent Fowl
 • Bags
 • Import Permit Numbers

Other items have remained on the list as they have entered a further round of verification.
