His Excellency the Governor General in Council, on the recommendation of the Minister of Finance, pursuant to subsection 16(2) (see footnote a) of the Customs Tariff (see footnote b), makes the annexed CETA Rules of Origin for Casual Goods Regulations.

CETA Rules of Origin for Casual Goods Regulations

Interpretation

1 In these Regulations, casual goods means goods other than goods imported for sale or for an industrial, occupational, commercial or institutional or other like use.

Casual Goods

2 Casual goods that are acquired in an EU country or other CETA beneficiary are considered to originate in that country and are entitled to the benefit of the Canada-European Union Tariff if

  • (a) the marking of the goods is in accordance with the marking laws of an EU country or other CETA beneficiary and indicates that the goods are the product of an EU country or other CETA beneficiary or of Canada; or
  • (b) the goods do not bear a mark and nothing indicates that the goods are neither the product of an EU country or other CETA beneficiary nor the product of Canada.

Coming into Force

3 These Regulations come into force on the day on which section 97 of the Canada–European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement Implementation Act, chapter 6 of the Statutes of Canada, 2017, comes into force, but if they are registered after that day, they come into force on the day on which they are registered.
