CETA did not go live on 1 July and that there is currently no indication as to when it will go live and preferential rates should not be claimed.
This Customs Information Paper (CIP) supplements CIP 10 (2017) concerning the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. CIP 10 (2017) brought to your attention the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, known as CETA, specifically details on the preferential and arrangements for Registered Exporter (REX).
CIP 10 stated that the Agreement was expected to enter into force on 1 July although, as this had not been confirmed, you should check the EU TARIC, the UK Online Trade Tariff and the Official Journals for updates.
This is to confirm that CETA did not go live on 1 July and that there is currently no indication as to when it will go live. The preferential rates provided for under that Agreement do not yet apply and should not be claimed.
Further updates will be provided in due course.
Any questions regarding the implementation of these preferential arrangements in the UK should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
