This training program will focus on regulations that apply to most goods imported into the United States and illustrate them with examples. In addition, attendees will learn more about country of origin marking for exports from the United States to other countries.

Why Should You Attend:

Every article of foreign origin entering the United States must be legibly marked with the country of origin unless an exception from marking is provided in the regulations/law. Goods can be detained by Customs before release if not properly marked. If goods are released and found to not be properly marked, they can be required to be redelivered to Customs custody. Failure to comply with the regulations can result in severe penalties to the importer. Importers in the United States will benefit by understanding the marking regulations and rules to avoid costly delays in delivering their goods and/or penalties. U.S. exports to other countries also require country of origin marking. Trade agreements such as NAFTA have a different set of marking rules.

In this webinar, exporters and manufacturers that ship goods to the United States will benefit by understanding U.S. marking regulations to properly mark their products before shipping them to the United States. In addition, U.S. exporters will learn more about marking rules for exports to other countries.
