Database Management Assistance/Advance Rulings
Tariff classification can be very complicated for certain goods.
The Customs Tariff may be subject to varying individual interpretation. The best way to validate a classification under the Harmonized System (HS) is by obtaining an advance ruling from CBSA. DB Schenker's Consulting Department can assist clients to obtain advance rulings if needed.
An advance ruling ensures that the tariff classification number used is deemed correct by the CBSA. The ruling is binding until it is revoked or amended. The advance ruling provides certainty to the importer as to how goods are to be classified and thereby facilitates the documentation requirements for clearing goods at the border.
