Description of the objective
Amendments to the Proof of Origin of Imported Goods Regulations made under the Customs Act are necessary to enforce the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement (CKFTA). These regulations will implement into Canadian law the commitments related to proof of origin that have been negotiated in the CKFTA. A new section outlining the specific proof of origin requirements for imported goods entitled to the benefit of preferential tariff treatment under the CKFTA is being added to these regulations. The other amendments to the Proof of Origin of Imported Goods Regulations create exemptions and alternatives to the general proof of origin requirement. More information relating to these amendments can be found at Customs Notice 14-033.
Enabling Act: Customs Act

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 were publicly announced by the CBSA in Customs Notice 14-033, published on December 22, 2014.
There are no further opportunities for public consultation.
