April 20, 2020 – The medical supplies list in Customs Notice 20-12 was updated on April 16 to cover a greater range of medical equipment and supplies that the World Health Organization (WHO) deems critical, such as oxygen concentrators and sample collection sets. A correction was also made for the tariff classification of plastic face shields. This change is revenue neutral, as the original classification and the new classification are both duty free. Please let us know if you have any questions about the importing and admissibility of any Covid-19 related goods into Canada.
