July 13, 2018

CBSA is sending this notification about the import of second hand/used mattresses, that has previously not been consistently enforced at port:
"As per D9-1-7, the regulations and guidelines state that used/second hand mattresses are prohibited from importation by the relevant legislation EXCEPT in circumstances where the mattress is being imported under tariff items 9805.00.00, 9806.00.00, 9807.00.00, 9808.00.00, 9809.00.00 or 9810.00.00."

Although mattresses may fall under the above prescribed exemptions, they are still required to be cleaned and fumigated prior to importation and must be accompanied by a certificate of fumigation.
