Import Permits for Steel-Elimination of Permits
April 02, 2012

The implementation of a new import permit system for steel and steel products will come into effect on April 1, 2012.

Importers of steel and steel products will no longer be required to obtain individual permits but will, instead, be provided by FAITC with general import permits (GIP) for all steel covered by the Import Control List of the Export and Import Permits Act.


The new import permit system will eliminate a need for importers of steel and steel products to provide to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) the individual permit information (electronic transaction record or paper copy of the transaction record) with the release request.
