The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) lists on its website the goods which are currently subject to its verification priorities.
Through verifications the Agency assesses importers' compliance with CBSA administered legislation, determines compliance within industry sectors and assesses the integrity of trade data received from importers.
Verifications usually concern the origin of imported goods, their tariff classification and their value for duty.
The following items were added in July to the tariff classification category:
• Cell Phone Cases
• Mountings, Fittings and Similar Articles
• Stone Table and Counter Tops
• Prepared Meat of Swine
• Live Plants
• Interchangeable Tools
• Air Brakes and Parts Thereof

Other items have remained on the list as they have entered a second or third stage of verification.
