May 15, 2018
Further to a message sent on March 28, where the availability of the SW Matching Tool was addressed, the CBSA’s TCCU has announced the following changes.
CBSA have provided a list of all HS items, in Excel format, that are included in the Matching Criteria document.
Clients Affected: All importers and brokers using the IID
The CBSA is pleased to announce that Trade Chain Partners can now use the SWI IID Regulated Commodities Data Element Matching Criteria to identify commodities regulated by a particular Participating Government Department or Agency (PGA) program.
The Regulated Commodities Data Element Matching Criteria Tables are to be used in conjunction with SWI IID Electronic Commerce Client Requirements Document in order to ensure that all of the mandatory commodity importation data and image requirements are captured.
Please note that not all PGA Programs make use of HS codes as a means to identify whether a commodity that is regulated by that program. Therefore, the Data Element Matching Criteria may also contain other commodity codes such as Intended Use codes, Canadian Product Codes, provision of a Licence Permit Certificate or Other, etc.
