2022 CBSA CUSTOMS TARIFF CHANGES - Effective Jan 1 2022

On January 1st, 2022, amendments to the Harmonized System (HS) nomenclature by the World Customs Organization (WCO) will enter into force.

The updated version of the 2022 Customs Tariff (T2022-1) contains 351 sets of amendments covering a wide range of goods throughout multiple chapters. These are triggered by various factors to account for environmental concerns, technological advancements and innovation, health and safety considerations, food and agriculture and changes in global trade.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has provided a Statistical concordance table at the 10-digit level in Microsoft Excel format, listing out all of the affected HS classification codes changes from 2021 to 2022 Customs Tariffs.

Advance and National Customs Rulings

Any importers who may currently hold an advance ruling or national customs ruling for tariff classification or origin,
should be advised that it may not be valid as of January 1st, 2022 when the 2022 Customs Tariff comes into effect.

“Where the tariff classification and/or the origin (when applicable) of the goods subject to a ruling may be impacted, the
CBSA strongly recommends that ruling recipients submit a request for validation of a ruling to the CBSA.”
(CBSA CN 21-20)

What Should Importers Do?

  • Review the 2022 Customs Tariff changes and identify if any of your goods are impacted (see Concordance table)
  •  Contact Schenker and communicate which commodities and HS code changes are affecting your imports, so we can update our commodity database for future shipments in 2022.
  • Determine if you have any CBSA HS rulings, which could be affected by the HS changes and contact Schenker’s Consulting team to help you obtain a revised ruling.

How can Schenker help?

  • Analyze your imports to see if the goods you have imported are affected by the HS changes and update our records accordingly.
  • Help you classify your products with correct HS classification in compliance with CBSA
  • Assist you to update your existing Advance/National Customs Rulings with CBSA or obtain new ones.
  • Assess your goods and HS classification changes against any Free Trade Agreements (FTA) and certificates requiring updates.
  • Submit any FTA duty refund opportunities to CBSA
