Part 6 – Division 8
Overview: Customs Act
The amendments to the Customs Act will improve client service and flexibility of existing provisions of the Customs Act pertaining to the appeal and correction process.
In particular, the amendments reduce the administrative burden for clients by allowing submission of appeals electronically and by allowing those appeals to be submitted directly to the directorate responsible for reviewing appeals. They also provide additional time for correcting flawed enforcement actions to facilitate the resolution of issues without the necessity for clients to go through the appeal process.
