When importing used or second-hand mattresses into Canada, they must be cleaned and accompanied by a certificate of fumigation. Although this rule has been in effect for almost ten years, it’s never been enforced by Canada Border Service Agency.
Therefore, it is now imperative that all shipments destined to Canada that have not yet been packed be cleaned and fumigated prior to shipment or leave the mattress behind. Details of the fumigation procedure used and a statement certifying that the procedure was carried out must accompany the shipment. We are working with our supplier partners to find solutions for shipments enroute.
Your Arpin Service team is aware of all shipments that may be impacted and will continue to provide you with additional updates as the situation warrants.
