About The Webinar

The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement includes some 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 a diverse range of non-automobile 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.

Note that this webinar will not go into all the details of the auto-specific rules of origin; a separate webinar on those rules is available here.

Key Topics

  • immediate rule of origin changes in steel, aluminum, and products containing steel and aluminum
  • rules to be implemented in later years
  • estimated impact to North American steel industry
  • other USMCA changes that may impact steel and aluminum trade

Please note we do not accept payment via American Express.
