Steel and Aluminum Provisions in the USMCA
Webinar: 0.5 CCS Credit
The soon-to-be-implemented U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement includes significant changes to trade rules regarding steel and steel products as well as some new rules regarding aluminum. A great deal of attention has been given to the new requirements for North American steel and aluminum in automobiles, but the agreement also mandates substantial changes for diverse steel and steel-containing products, including iron and steel structures, stranded wire, welded tubes, nails, electrical transformers and railway components.
This 45-minute webinar will provide an overview of the most substantial changes in this sector, which affect not only direct steel and aluminum producers but also down-the-line producers of steel- and aluminum-containing goods.
- immediate rules of origin changes in steel, aluminum, and major products containing steel and aluminum
- other rules to be implemented in later years
- estimated impact to North American steel industry
- other USMCA changes that may impact steel and aluminum trade
