This webinar will help attendees understand how to meet the rules that are required to qualify their imports/exports between the three NAFTA countries (United States, Canada, and Mexico). In addition, learn status and topics of concern on renegotiations of NAFTA.

Why Should You Attend:

NAFTA is the largest free trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The NAFTA provides for the entry of goods duty-free into each of the countries provided that the goods meet the strict rules of origin in the agreement. A NAFTA Certificate of Origin is required for most goods that can qualify under the rules and must be completed by the exporter and in possession of the importer when the goods are entered into the importing country. Failure to know the rules and properly complete the NAFTA Certificate of Origin and maintain proper documentation can result in severe penalties.

This webinar will provide an overview of the NAFTA agreement. It will also assist you in properly completing the NAFTA Certificate of Origin for qualified goods in order to receive duty-free treatment. It will help you in preventing errors that could result in severe civil and/or criminal penalties imposed by each country's Customs administration and preparing for a NAFTA audit.
