January 27, 2020 – Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) recently issued Customs Notice 20-02 on January 15, 2020 advising of an amendment to the Customs Tariff effective of January 10, 2020. The amendment updates Section XI Textiles and Textiles articles of the Customs Tariff to implement Article 317 of the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, Short Supply.

Importation of goods qualifying under the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement (CCOFTA) short supply are eligible to claim duty-free rate. ?The full range of HS classifications at the 6th digit level under Section XI of the customs tariff, qualifying for Canada–Columbia short supply is found under the supplementary notes.

The Order Amending the Schedule to the Customs Tariff (CCOFTA Short Supply) amends the schedule to the Customs Tariff to establish a list of yarns and fabrics not produced in commercial quantities in Canada or Colombia, and to allow textile goods or apparel produced in Colombia from those yarns or fabrics to be eligible for CCOFTA duty-free status when imported into Canada. Details found in Canada Gazette Part II, SOR/2020-1, Volume 154, number 2.

Under the terms of the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement (CCOFTA), Canada and Colombia have agreed to establish a “short supply” list of yarns and fabrics that are not produced in Canada or Colombia. These textile inputs may be used to produce textile products or apparel that are eligible for duty-free treatment when imported into Canada or Colombia.

The Order Amending the Schedule to the Customs Tariff (CCOFTA Short Supply) implements, in Canada, this bilaterally agreed list of yarns and fabrics. Accordingly, listed goods may be sourced outside of the free trade area and used in the production of Colombian textile products or apparel that are eligible for duty-free treatment when imported into Canada.

Article?317 (Short Supply) of the CCOFTA provides a limited exception to this requirement and allows both Parties to agree that certain textile inputs are not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner in either Canada or Colombia. Once agreed upon, these inputs are in short supply and may be imported from outside the free trade area and used to produce originating textile and apparel goods that are eligible for duty-free treatment.

Canada and Colombia agreed to establish a list of 73 items that were determined to be in short supply. These items cover a range of yarns and fabrics from wool, cashmere, cotton and man-made fibres, such as polyester and viscose rayon with very specific requirements (e.g. the yarn or fabric must meet a given weight specification).

For certainty regarding the tariff classification of a product, importers may request an advance ruling on tariff classification. Details on how to make such a request can be found in CBSA Memorandum D11-11-3 – Advance Rulings for Tariff Classification,

January 22, 2020 – The Canadian government will introduce and unveil legislation in Parliament to ratify the United States-Mexico-Canada trade deal during the week of Jan. 27, 2020. Canada is moving forward on ratifying the trilateral agreement, known as USMCA, with the United States and Mexico. The USA ratified the USMCA earlier this month on 16 January 2020, which was passed by the U.S. Senate. U.S President Trump is expected to sign the agreement sometime in the coming weeks.

Canada is to ratify the revamp of the 26-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that includes tougher rules on labor and automotive content. The agreement cannot take effect until it has been ratified by all three-member nations.

For Canada, the USMCA is referred to Canada-US-Mexico Free Trade Agreement (CUSMA). For Mexico the agreement is referred as T-MEC.

Once ratified by all three countries the agreement may come into force on the 1st day after the 90-day period. We anticipate that we may see the agreement may come into force before June 2020.

Highlights on upcoming changes.

  • NAFTA certificate – replaced with a Certification of Origin (not a certificate of origin)
  • Automotive sector rules – 70% of components must be manufactured in Canada, Mexico or the US.
  • Agriculture and Dairy Products – New market access in the form of tariff rate quotas (TRQ)
  • Chapter 19 – Trade remedies and related dispute settlement
  • Intellectual property – updated with obligations on copyright and other related rights,
  • Rules of Origin – Annex 4B product specific rules of origin and automotive rules
  • De Minimus Rules –
    United States $800 USD.
    Mexico $117 USD for customs and $50 USD for taxes.

Canada $150 CAD for customs and $40 CAD for taxes.

Under the new De Minimus rule for Canada here is how the duties and taxes will apply.

  • Goods Shipped by Courier* to Canada from the United States or Mexico
    a) Goods valued at $40 and less – No duty or GST/HST/PST payable.
    b) Goods valued at more than $40 up to and including $150- No duty payable. GST/HST/PST payable.
    c) Goods valued at more than $150 up to and including $3300 – Duty and GST/HST/PST payable. Declaration of origin not required for goods valued at US$1000 or less. Simplified origin declaration for goods valued over US$1000.
    *Definition of courier as defined in the Courier Imports Remission Order
  • Goods shipped, other than by courier, to Canada from the United States or Mexico
    a) Goods valued at $20 and less – No duty or GST/HST/PST payable.
    b) Goods valued at over $20 – Duty and GST/HST/PST payable.
  • Good Shipped by Courier to Canada from a Country other than the United States or Mexico
    Goods valued at $20 and less – No duty or GST/HST/PST payable.
    Goods valued at over $20 – Duty and GST/HST/PST payable.
  • Goods Shipped to Canada, other than by Courier or Post, from a Country other than the United States or Mexico.
    All goods – Duty and GST/HST/PST payable

The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) and the Canada’s Dept of Finance advises that there will be no transition period to meet the new requirements for rules of origin. When NAFTA sunsets the new rules will take effect immediately providing a 3-month window for companies to ensure parts qualified under NAFTA will meet the new rules under USMCA.

Functional guidance will also be provided from Dept of Commerce and Finance as well as Customs administrations for implementation on the new agreement.

January 21, 2020 – World Customs Organization (WCO) recently posted information on the new 2022 Edition of the Harmonized System.?

The Harmonized System (HS) is governed by “The International Convention on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System”. The maintenance of the HS is a WCO priority. This activity includes measures to secure uniform interpretation of the HS and its periodic updating in light of developments in technology and changes in trade patterns. The WCO manages this process through the Harmonized System Committee (representing the Contracting Parties to the HS Convention), which examines policy matters, takes decisions on classification questions, settles disputes and prepares amendments to the Explanatory Notes. The HS Committee also prepares amendments updating the HS every 5 – 6 years.

HS 2022, which is the seventh edition of the Harmonized System (HS) nomenclature used for the uniform classification of goods traded internationally all over the world, has been accepted by the all Contracting Parties to the Harmonized System Convention.?HS 2022 shall come into force on 1 January 2022.

The HS serves as the basis for Customs tariffs and for the compilation of international trade statistics in 211 economies (of which 158 are Contracting Parties to the HS Convention). ?The new HS 2022 edition makes some major changes to the Harmonized System with a total of 351 sets of amendments covering a wide range of goods moving across borders.?

Here are some of the highlights:

Adaption to current trade through the recognition of new product streams and addressing environmental and social issues of global concern are the major features of the HS 2022 amendments.

Visibility will be introduced to several high-profile product streams in the 2022 Edition to recognize the changing trade patterns.? Electrical and electronic waste, commonly referred to as e-waste, is one example of a product class which presents significant policy concerns as well as a high value of trade, hence HS 2022 includes specific provisions for its classification to assist countries in their work under the Basel Convention.

New provisions for novel tobacco and nicotine-based products resulted from the difficulties of the classification of these products, lack of visibility in trade statistics and the very high monetary value of this trade. ?Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly referred to as drones, also gain their own specific provisions to simplify the classification of these aircraft.? Smartphones will gain their own subheading and Note, which will also clarify and confirm the current heading classification of these multifunctional devices.

Major reconfigurations have been undertaken for the subheadings of heading 70.19 for glass fibres and articles thereof and for heading 84.62 for metal forming machinery.? These changes recognize that the current subheadings do not adequately represent the technological advances in these sectors, leaving a lack of trade statistics important to the industries and potential classification difficulties.

One area which is a focus for the future is the classification of multi-purpose intermediate assemblies.? However, one very important example of such a product has already been addressed in HS 2022. ?Flat panel display modules will be classified as a product which will simplify classification of these modules by removing the need to identify final use.? Health and safety have also featured in the changes.? The recognition of the dangers of delays in the deployment of tools for the rapid diagnosis of infectious diseases in outbreaks has led to changes to the provisions for such diagnostic kits to simplify classification.?

New provisions for placebos and clinical trial kits for medical research to enable classification without information on the ingredients in a placebos will assist in facilitating cross-border medical research.? Cell cultures and cell therapy are among the product classes that have gained new and specific provisions. ?On a human security level, several new provisions specifically provide for various dual use items.? These range from toxins to laboratory equipment.

Protection of society and the fight against terrorism are increasingly important roles for Customs.? Many new subheadings have been created for dual use goods that could be diverted for unauthorized use, such as radioactive materials and biological safety cabinets, as well as for items required for the construction of improvised explosive devices, such as detonators. Goods specifically controlled under various Conventions have also been updated.

The HS 2022 Edition introduces new subheadings for specific chemicals controlled under the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), for certain hazardous chemicals controlled under the Rotterdam Convention and for certain persistent organic pollutants (POPs) controlled under the Stockholm Convention. Furthermore, at the request of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), new subheadings have been introduced for the monitoring and control of fentanyls and their derivatives as well as two fentanyl precursors.

Major changes, including new heading Note 4 to Section VI and new heading 38.27, have been introduced for gases controlled under the Kigali Amendment of the Montreal Protocol. The changes are not confined to creating new specific provisions for various goods. ?The amendments also include clarification of texts to ensure uniform application of the nomenclature. ?For example, there are changes for the clarification and alignment between French and English of the appropriate way to measure wood in the rough for the purposes of subheadings under heading 44.03.

Given the wide scope of the changes, there are many important changes not mentioned in this short introduction.? All interested parties are encouraged to read the Recommendation carefully (to be published soon).?

Implementation in 2022

While January 2022 may seem far off, a lot of work needs to be done at WCO, national and regional levels for the timely implementation of the new HS edition. ?The WCO is currently working on the development of requisite correlation tables between the current 2017 and the new edition of the HS, and on updating the HS publications, such as the Explanatory Notes, the Classification Opinions, the Alphabetical Index and the HS online database.

Customs administrations and regional economic communities have a huge task to ensure timely implementation of the 2022 HS Edition, as required by the HS Convention. ?They are therefore encouraged to begin the process of preparing for the implementation of HS 2022 in their national Customs tariff or statistical nomenclatures. The WCO will step up its capacity building efforts to assist Members with their implementation.
