Due to the numerous changes to the AIRS database, we encourage the users to consult AIRS to view the most recent updates to the CFIA regulated food products and to obtain pertinent information. For those importers/brokers using the AIRS Verification Service (AVS), AVS currently reflects all updated AIRS information.

As of February 2020, all importers and custom brokers must be using the secure AVS web link https://www.inspection.gc.ca/avs and the updated AVS Tech Specifications. If you experience technical difficulties, please contact the National Import Service Centre

For more information regarding the HS codes being changed, see Changes to harmonized system (HS) codes.
