About The Webinar

Seemingly small document deficiencies can lead to significant duty assessments. U.S. Customs and Border Protection has increased its enforcement of claims for preferential duty treatment for textile and apparel products under free trade agreements. Many small and medium-sized companies, as well as large shippers, are receiving verification notices with tight timelines to respond and support their claims.

Join us for a comprehensive discussion of FTA documentation and recordkeeping for textile and apparel products.

Key Topics

  • timelines for responding to verification requests
  • proper completion of NAFTA certificates
  • FTA self-certification
  • recordkeeping requirements and penalties
  • best practices for documents to verify duty preference claims
