Country of origin is important for determining and regulating duty rates, preferential trade agreements, trade sanctions and import quotas. This webinar will focus on finding the correct country of origin for your export goods and preparing accurate documentation. Mislabelling or not identifying the origin of your goods could mean extra penalties, delays and complications during export. Further, your origin documentation is likely to be reused by distributors in the country of import, so getting it right is vital to keeping customers.
