Duration: 75 Minutes

MX customs has increased the number of NAFTA origin verification procedures and will continued to do so - at least before the new agreement is implemented.Therefore, you should be prepared to properly respond to one of these procedures and be ready for any potential changes.
NAFTA Rules of Origin
Instructor: Brenda Cordova
Product ID: 509560
Objectives of the Presentation
Identify the main differences between USMCA and NAFTA in regards to:
  • Rules of Origin
  • Customs Procedures
  • Recordkeeping
  • Origin verifications
Why Should you Attend
If you are currently participating in NAFTA, issuing NAFTA certificates of origin for goods exported to MX or claiming preferential treatment in Mexico, Mexican customs can still audit you under the current rules. It is expected they will continue auditing companies until the new agreement is ratified and becomes enforced and effective in the territory of the member countries - which may take a year or more. Therefore, you should be informed about the current NAFTA customs procedures and the potential USMCA changes that can affect your operations.

Who will Benefit
Practitioners who work in global environment and those who want to enhance their knowledge about NAFTA origin and customs procedures, such as:
  • Directors or global trade compliance
  • Export/import compliance managers
  • Customs brokers
  • Customs compliance
  • International trade specialist
Topic Background
As of today, the new USMCA, which is expected to replace NAFTA, has not yet been ratified by the governments of Mexico, Canada and the United States. In the meantime, Mexican Customs authorities continue auditing and implementing verification procedures about the origin of the goods imported into Mexico under NAFTA. In fact, it appears to be that they are increasing the number of verification procedures and are not being very flexible as they used to be in the past.
