Our Country of Origin Determination course will introduce you to the Kyoto Convention World Customs Organization and describe its relevance to you.
Country of origin determines whether a product is subject to anti-dumping, countervailing or Section 201, 232, and 301 duties when it’s imported into the U.S. Country of origin determines whether a product is eligible for duty free treatment when exported to your customers’ foreign location.
