About The Webinar

The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement (USMCA) imposed significant new requirements for increased North American content for vehicles produced in the USMCA countries. While the requirements are focused on the vehicle producers, the higher North American content requirements ripple throughout the supply chain and places significant responsibility on suppleirs of automotive goods. For example, the USMCA includes a complex regional value content scheme with different calculations for “core parts,” “principal parts,” and “complementary parts.” In addition, there are requirements for steel, aluminum, and labor value content that require vehicle producers and suppliers to collect specific information from their supply chains to validate compliance with the USMCA. This webinar will review the USMCA origin rules for passenger vehicles, light trucks, and heavy trucks as well as the direct materials incorporated into these vehicles.
