Rules of Origin Determinations & Country of Origin Marking

In today’s global supply chains, where products often undergo processing in multiple countries, it’s not always clear in which country origin is ultimately conferred. However, failure to properly determine the country of origin can lead to penalties, loss of duty preferences, and detentions or seizures.

ST&R professionals can assist in evaluating your products, production processes, and sourcing patterns to make proper origin determinations and identify marking requirements, whether proactively or in response to Customs. If your goods are subject to tariffs, we can also assess the feasibility of shifting your operations to a country with a lower duty rate.

What is Country of Origin & Marking?

The country of origin of a product is where it is deemed to be produced, and each country has different ways of determining it. Country of origin determinations can affect the duty rate, preference program eligibility, antidumping and countervailing duties, trade sanctions, and import restrictions applicable to a particular product. The country of origin must also be marked on most products at the time of their importation, and failure to do so can result in their detention.
