Country of Origin Webinar
Half-Day Session — 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Central Time
Certificate Issued Upon Completion.
An important part of international trade is determining the correct country of origin for your goods. Unfortunately that's not always obvious, and the process for making that determination can be different depending on whether you are qualifying your goods under one of the United States' Free Trade Agreements.
This half-hour Country of Origin webinar will help you understand the rules for determining origin under each of the different scenarios including the definition of “Substantial Transformation” versus “Simple Assembly” using real-world examples.
You will receive a PDF of the full PowerPoint used in the webinar.
