(17) 19 Update on trading between the EU and Canada

The new trade agreement between the EU and Canada comes into force on 21 September 2017. 

This Customs Information Paper, CIP 19 (2017), supplements CIP 10 (2017) concerning the EU and Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).

CIP 10 (2017) announced CETA, specifically the details on preferential origin and links to the text of the agreement. It was followed by CIP 11 (2017) confirming CETA was not implemented on 1 July as originally intended.

The European Commission have published Official Journal L238/9 confirming CETA is to be provisionally implemented from 21 September 2017. From this date provided all of the required conditions are met the preferential rates may be claimed for qualifying goods exported from the EU to Canada or vice versa.

For tariff rates please check the EU TARIC or the UK Online Trade Tariff.
