Customs: Towards safer trade between Canada and the EU
The EU and Canada agreed on 4 March 2013 to cooperate more closely to ensure the security of their supply chains.
The new agreement signed today builds on the existing customs cooperation agreement with Canada and extends it to include supply chain security and related risk management matters. It will allow closer cooperation between the two parties, with a view to ensuring a high level of security while facilitating legitimate trade between the EU and Canada.
