CBSA Request for Assistance Application Form

The Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) has established a process that gives Intellectual Right Property Owners (IPRs) the right to detain shipments – suspected of carrying counterfeit or copyright trademark goods – at the border.

When you file a Request for Assistance Application (RFA), you help the CBSA identify and detain suspected counterfeit or pirated goods during commercial examinations. The CBSA will use the information in the RFA to contact the right holders and give them the details they need to take legal action.
