Forward Regulatory Plan: 2017-2019
Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement Omnibus Amendments

Description of the objective

Amendments to existing regulations made under the Customs Act and new regulations related to verification of origin procedures are necessary to enforce the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA). These regulations will implement into Canadian law the commitments related to customs procedures that have been negotiated in the CKFTA. The particulars of each of these amendments can be found at Customs Notice 14-033.

Enabling Act: Customs Act

Indication of business impacts

There are no expected business impacts.

Public consultation opportunities

Canada has been administering these regulations as though the amendments are already in place, since the coming-into-force of the CKFTA on January 1, 2015.

The amendments to these regulations and the new regulations described above were publicly announced by the CBSA in Customs Notice 14-033, published on December 22, 2014. There are no further opportunities for public consultation.
