Customs Notices

Customs Notices are issued to inform clients about proposed changes to customs programs and procedures. They are not intended as an ongoing reference.

NOTE: Customs Notices are maintained online for the current and previous year. They are also maintained online if they have a regulatory impact and are awaiting regulatory approval.

Any information contained in a Customs Notice that is intended as ongoing reference material has been integrated into a D-Memorandum. Please consult our valid D-Memoranda on the Canada Border Services Agency Web site or find the requested information through our different programs and services.
