New NAFTA, known as USMCA (U.S.), CUSMA (Canada) and T-MEC (Mexico), came into effect on July 1, 2020 with an additional deadline for its implementation until the end of the year. Join us with North American trade expert and licensed U.S. customs broker Adam Hill, President and COO of Scarbrough Group of Companies, to learn more about the highlights of the revised U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). For each type of well-described, you can specify the applicable criterion (A to D). The rules of origin are in Chapter 4. To qualify for preferential tariff treatment, each product must meet at least one of the following criteria. They must be able to present the certificate that applies for duty-free preferential benefits when they apply to the appropriate customs authorities in the United States, Mexico or Canada. They must also be able to provide support to demonstrate the status of “native products” that served as the basis for their certification. Customs authorities may impose penalties or fines for non-compliance.

Please note that after July 1, 2020, NAFTA certificates of origin will no longer be used as proof of origin for the lots. To qualify for the duty-free status of the USMCA/CUSMA/T-MEC agreement, the products shipped must be considered originating in each of the three areas that can be proven by providing specific information. There are new rules of origin that determine whether goods are covered by the new agreement. This video explains how CBP can conduct an audit to determine whether a transcript containing a request for preferential treatment under the USMCA is considered to be native. The United States, Canada and Mexico have ratified a free trade agreement. The trade agreement replaces the old nafta trade agreement and came into force on July 1, 2020.

Under NAFTA, there was a mandatory format for the provision of a certificate of origin.

Form CBP 434 is not required according to the USMCA. According to the USMCA, a certificate of origin form is not strictly required, but data elements are required and can be provided by shippers in different formats. This can be provided by various documents, including commercial invoices, returns or the sender`s shipping certificate. Shippers can use the IncoDocs model to create and download a USMCA model containing the required data elements. Certification can be carried out on a single shipping basis or with a flat-rate certification to cover products for a period of 12 months. The U.S.-Mexico-Mexico Agreement (USMCA) is a trade agreement between these parties. The USMCA replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Unlike the NAFTA Certificate of Origin requirement, the USMCA does not need a specific form.
