Customs Information Paper 11 (2017)

Tariff Preference: Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada - Update

1. Introduction

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

2. Background

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).

In that CIP is was explained 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.

3. Update

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.

Therefore, this is to confirm that 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.

4. Contact

Any questions regarding the implementation of these preferential arrangements in the UK should be emailed to: dutyliability.policy@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk
