5. Due to system limitations, all changes will be active in the downstream applications, such as TRAS, at a later date. A new Customs Notice will be published to advise when the changes will be effective.

6. For certainty regarding the tariff classification, origin or value for duty of a product, importers may request a ruling. Details on submitting a request for a ruling can be found in the Memorandum D11-11-3, Advance Rulings for Tariff Classification, Memorandum D11-11-1, National Customs Rulings (NCR), or Memorandum D11-4-16 Advance rulings for origin under Free Trade Agreements.

7. Importers who are in possession of a tariff classification advance ruling should review the changes in Tariff Amendment T2023-4 to determine if the tariff classification number of the goods under their existing ruling is still valid. Where the tariff classification of a good under a ruling letter is no longer valid, importers may submit a request to the CBSA office where the original ruling was issued for an affirmation of the ruling. Should the Advance Ruling no longer be valid, a modified ruling will be issued by the CBSA confirming the correct tariff classification number.
