Background

Traders have until Sept. 7 to submit comments to U.S. Customs and Border Protection on two new rules implementing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement that replaced NAFTA.

One rule took effect July 1 on an interim basis and implements “significant portions” of the USMCA, including with respect to certifications of origin, value calculation, marking exceptions, claim verification, records and documents, drawback claims, and other issues. Click here for more details.

The second rule proposes to apply the tariff shift rules in 19 CFR Part 102 to all country of origin determinations for non-preferential purposes (e.g., admissibility, quota, government procurement, and Section 301 tariffs) for goods imported from Canada and Mexico. Click here for more details.

ST&R will hold a webinar Aug. 31 to examine this proposed rule, including its potential benefits and challenges for U.S. importers. Click here to register.
