The new NAFTA came into force in July 2020. If you were the party responsible for signing the NAFTA Certificates of Origin at your company, are seeking duty relief for your imports, or trying to figure out whether your goods are still eligible under the new rules of origin, this webinar is for you! In this session you will learn the key differences between the new CUSMA / USMCA / T-MEC and the original NAFTA. It will provide guidance on the required data elements and break down making the declaration into three main topics: QUALIFICATION (the new rules of origin and analysis); CERTIFICATION (the signature and legal responsibility); and VERIFICATION (prepares you for a customs audit).
