The Canada Border Services Agency has issued a Customs Notice outlining the process for seeking 2012 authorizations under the Textile and Apparel Remission Orders program:

1. The purpose of this customs notice is to inform industry that the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is now accepting applications for the 2012 calendar year for renewals of authorizations required pursuant to the following Remission Orders, subsequently amended most recently by P.C. 2008-1599, Order Amending Certain Textile and Apparel Remission Orders, 2008:

• P.C. 1997-830 (Tailored Collar Shirts Remission Order, 1997)
• P.C. 1997-2054 (Outerwear Greige Fabrics Remission Order, 1998)
• P.C. 1997-2055 (Shirting Fabrics Remission Order, 1998)

• P.C. 1997-2058 (Outerwear Fabrics Remission Order, 1998).

2. These six Orders remain in effect and are currently scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012.

3. Eligible apparel manufacturers or fabric producers, as named in the Schedules to these Orders, that wish to avail themselves of the related provisions may do so by obtaining an annual authorization to import under that Order or by filing a drawback claim to recover duties paid on qualifying goods.

4. If an eligible manufacturer or producer intends to have duties remitted at the time of importation, that manufacturer or producer must submit, prior to or at the beginning of each calendar year, to the address noted below, an application by Letter of Intent, confirming that the company:

• is a manufacturer or producer of (insert description of qualifying goods) in Canada;
• is listed in the Schedule to the Order and has a 1995 duty entitlement of (insert 1995 allocation);
• will not exceed the amount of duties that may be claimed for remission on imported goods;
• has, if applicable, included:
the names and addresses of any other persons or companies that might be performing cutting or sewing operations in Canada on its behalf; or
the names and addresses of any distributors that have purchased finished outerwear fabric or outerwear greige fabric to be sold to outerwear apparel manufacturers;
• will maintain records that are satisfactory to the CBSA;
• will meet all of the conditions set out in the Order; and
• will provide the CBSA with any other information that may be requested to substantiate a claim for remission.

5. Eligible manufacturers benefiting from the provisions of the Blouses, Shirts and Co-Ordinates Remission Order must specify whether they are a manufacturer of ladies' blouses and shirts or a manufacturer of ladies' co-ordinates, as that determines the nature of the goods that may be imported into Canada pursuant to the Order.

6. Authorized manufacturers and producers will continue to have the ability to recover any duties that have been paid on qualifying goods by filing a drawback claim at the address noted below.

7. An eligible manufacturer or producer claiming remission by way of drawback must meet the same requirements as an authorized manufacturer or producer claiming remission at the time of importation, although a Letter of Intent to obtain an authorization number is not required.
