The NAFTA (Canada, Mexico, US) Rules of Origin and Certificate of Origin Requirements
Are you obtaining the lowest possible duty rate on your trade in goods with Canada, Mexico, and US? The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) reduces or eliminates duties on eligible goods traded among these North American markets. To determine eligibility for favorable treatment under the Agreement, and to preclude third countries from obtaining benefits by merely passing goods through North America, the NAFTA rules of origin were negotiated. NAFTA adopted the same basic origin rule as has governed the 1988 US-Canada FTA: goods generally must undergo sufficient processing within North America to result in a change in tariff classification.<br/><br/>
