Non-compliance occurs when the licensee of the duty free shop fails to ensure that the duty free shop is locked and sealed when requested by a customs officer or other officer as prescribed in the Duty Free Shop Regulations.
The requirement to lock and seal a duty free shop is normally requested by a customs officer when a complete inventory is undertaken by local CBSA officers or when a licensee fails to renew its duty free shop licence, or the licence has been suspended or cancelled by the Minister of Public Safety.
Authority for the above is required to be given by the Manager of the Duty Free Shop Program prior to taking action.
