Duty-Free Access to Beef and Veal Originating from CPTPP Member Countries

Trade Update • February 7, 2023

nder the Canada Tariff Elimination Schedule of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), the out-of-access tariff was fully eliminated on fresh, chilled or frozen beef and veal imports into Canada that originate from CPTPP member countries.

What this Means for Importers

Importers will no longer need specific import permits to use the preferential duty rate under CPTPP. Beef and veal that meet the rules of origin and other relevant requirements provided in the CPTPP have become duty-free as of January 1, 2023.

For beef and veal imported from CPTPP member countries, importers can apply for a shipment-specific permit under the WTO TRQ or cite GIP100 on their import documentation to receive duty-free treatment. An allocation under the WTO TRQ and a shipment-specific permit are required for imports made on a non-preferential basis under the WTO TRQ.
