U.S. Country of Origin rules are becoming increasingly complex. Some of the rules of origin previously applicable under the NAFTA have changed with the implementation of the USMCA; the substantial transformation test must be applied to determine whether items originate in a country for purposes of trade remedies, including the Section 301 duties imposed on goods from China and the EU, regardless of the origin determination for free trade agreements; and CBP recently published a notice requiring goods from Hong Kong to be marked in a manner that is different from the country of origin reported on the customs entry.
In this webinar, we will untangle the brambles of U.S. origin rules and provide tips on how to implement procedures to support compliance.
This webinar is approved for 1.5 hours general CLE credit in Missouri and 1.25 hours general CLE credit in California and Illinois. 1.25 hours general CLE credit in Texas is pending.
