Ask Me Anything: Understanding Origin Declarations and Requirements
Mislabeling or not identifying the origin of your goods can lead to penalties and delays. Make sure you’re getting it right.
Country of origin can have a significant impact on an exporter’s ability to sell their product in certain markets. In addition, it helps determine the amount of duty that must be paid, if a product qualifies under a preferential trade agreement and how it relates to import quotas.
Hopefully you have a basic understanding of the requirements, but if you’ve attended other webinars on this topic, chances are you didn’t get your specific questions answered. If that’s the case, you'll want to watch this Ask Me Anything (AMA) session.
Joining us for this one-hour webinar is Partnerships Manager Alex Sonifrank from the American World Trade Chamber of Commerce (AWTCC). Alex has assisted with customs clearance for exporters throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. He has presented on country of origin alongside the U.S. Commercial Service and for many chambers of commerce throughout the United States. The AWTCC is the U.S. representative to the ICC WCF International Certificate of Origin Council and the first U.S. chamber accredited by the ICC on certificates of origin.
Alex answered questions about origin determination, origin transformations, preparing certificates of origin and a number of other topics related to origin declarations and requirements. Chances are good that someone asked a question similar to yours!
