CETA Imports of Textile and Apparel Products

The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) came into effect September 21, 2017. As a result of CETA implementation, Canadian imports for qualifying textile and apparel products will now be monitored under an annual origin quota on a first-come, first-served basis. To receive the preferential tariff treatment available through CETA, the importer must now obtain a shipment-specific import permit, which is issued by the Canada Export and Import Controls System (EICS). The importer is also required to complete Field 26 (the Special Authority box) of Form B3-3, Canada Customs Coding Form, with P.C. number: 17-1124.

Additional information is listed in Annex 5-A of the CETA about textile and apparel products that are now under an origin quota and also require an EICS permit.
