Charter is recognized as an industry leader in Canada for its expertise concerning the eligibility of Canadian petroleum products for duty-free treatment under the North American Free Trade Agreement. Charter has worked closely with CBSA on behalf of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) to design and implement administrative solutions to the origin issues that have prevented shippers from documenting compliance with NAFTA requirements. Charter also has engaged in industry outreach with the Canadian petroleum industry to explain the requirements for this important trade preference.
In addition to petroleum, Charter has substantial experience with respect to the application of Canadian customs requirements to oil field equipment, petrochemicals, chemicals and resins and numerous other products and commodities transported into and out of Canada.
Charter is a member of The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), the Canadian Association of Importers and Exports (I.E. Canada) and the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers.
