When European Union-origin goods become duty free in Canada

     Canada EU

Duties on most EU-origin goods will be staged out at varying rates when the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is provincially implemented on either June 1 or July 1, 2017.

The agreement applies to 98% of EU-origin goods.  EU companies will need to be on the Registered Exporter System to claim origin preference under CETA.

For more information, contact Brian Rowe, Director – Customs Compliance & Regulatory Affairs.
