SWI for Transport Canada

Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) has implemented the Single Window Initiative (SWI) for Transport Canada, which controls the importation of tires and vehicles.

 

Documentation needed by Transport Canada for the importation of tires are as follows:

  • Importer contact name, telephone number and email address: Required to be able to contact the importer in the event additional information is needed to make admissibility or release decision.
  • TC tires (PGA Process-Type): Required so the system knows what is being imported in order to determine what import requirements apply to the shipment.
  • Tire class, type, and size: Used, in conjunction with other data collected, to ensure that the vehicle is admissible to Canada and to make a release decision.
  • Quantity for unit size (shipments over 10,000 tires are reported differently): Used, in conjunction with other data collected, to ensure that the vehicle is admissible to Canada and to make a release decision.
  • Reason for import: Used, in conjunction with other data collected, to ensure that the vehicle is admissible to Canada and to make a release decision.
  • Brand name: Used, in conjunction with other data collected, to ensure that the vehicle is admissible to Canada and to make a release decision.
  • Manufacturer name: Used, in conjunction with other data collected, to ensure that the vehicle is admissible to Canada and to make a release decision.
  • Affirmation of compliance for new/retreaded tires from all countries and the U.S.A.: In order for tires to be admissible into Canada, they must be in compliance with the Motor Vehicle Safety Standards requirements and the importer must provide an “Affirmation of Compliance” upon importation.
  • Affirmation of compliance for used tires from all countries and the U.S.A.: In order for tires to be admissible into Canada, they must be in compliance with the Motor Vehicle Safety Standards requirements and the importer must provide an “Affirmation of Compliance” upon importation.
