RVIA Clarifies RV Importation into Canada
The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) has issued a Standard News Bulletin to provide accurate information on the procedures governing the importation of RVs into Canada, specifically the administrative convenience mechanism known as the pre-clearance system administered by Transport Canada, according to a news release.
“Over the past several months, there has been considerable discussion on this topic with much of it driven by confusion regarding apparent ‘changes’ to Transport Canada’s pre-clearance program,” said RVIA Vice President of Standards and Education Bruce Hopkins. “To be clear, there have not been any changes or new regulations whatsoever. To clarify any confusion, RVIA has worked with Transport Canada and RV manufacturers in producing this bulletin to provide accurate information on Transport Canada activities regarding certification and export-import issues.”
The Standards News Bulletin provides a detailed explanation of the program and its requirements. In addition, the bulletin also includes a copy of Memorandum D19-12-1 from the Canada Border Services Agency that provides complete program regulations, Canadian Customs Invoice (CCI), B3 Customs Coding Invoice, and NVIS (New Vehicle Informatiom Statement).
RVIA manufacturer and supplier members were sent copies of the Standards News Bulletin. To obtain a copy, please contact RVIA’s Gatie Gore at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 620-6003, ext. 348.
