The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced the signing of a Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) with the National Superintendency of Customs and Tax Administration of the Republic of Peru (SUNAT) to honour each other’s Trusted Trader programs.
This MRA signifies that Peru will recognize Canada’s Partners in Protection (PIP) program and will facilitate customs clearance for PIP members. In turn, the CBSA will provide reciprocal benefits to members of Peru’s Trusted Trader program, which is referred to as their Authorized Economic Operator program.
The CBSA signs MRAs with customs organizations around the world so that countries can recognize each others’ members and choose to honour similar benefits and security standards.
In addition to this MRA with Peru, the CBSA has signed MRAs with the Customs Administrations of Australia, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and the United States.
