CETA Origin Declaration update

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has advised that Field 3 of the CETA Origin Declaration can be completed with any one of the following preferential origin indications:

  • Canada
  • EU
  • Canada/EU
  • CM

This update overrides an earlier decision that Field 3 needed to specifically indicate “Canada/EU” if the products qualified as originating under the CETA Rules of Origin. The only exception was for products originating in Ceuta or Melilla, in which case CM would have been the correct indication. This was in accordance with the instructions in Annex 2 of the CETA Protocol on ROO and OP.

CETA Origin Declaration wording:

“The exporter of the products covered by this document (customs authorization No …) declares that, except where otherwise indicated, these products are of …(3) preferential origin.”
