Learn to Save on Tariffs and Fees with USMCA
In the U.S.A., the agreement is named the USMCA (U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement); it replaced the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) on 7/1/2020. In Canada, the agreement is named the CUSMA (Canada United States Mexico Agreement). In Mexico, the agreement is named the T-MEC (Tratado entre Mexico Estados Unidos y Canada). These are the three names for a single agreement between three nations.
USMCA’s entry into force symbolizes the beginning of a new chapter for North American firms; it supports trade that is more balanced and reciprocal between the three member countries. Trade and stronger economic development in North America are a goal of the USMCA. The USMCA contains enhancements; it modernized products’ rules of origin, improved agricultural market access, and strengthened intellectual property, digital trade, financial services, and labor rules.
Issuing a USMCA origin statement represents a firm’s commitment to understanding the rules of origination, record keeping, and legal obligations. Our course provides the information you need to make decisions that will ensure your compliance with USMCA’s rules, U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s regulations while benefiting your supply chain and your customers.
