This training program will discuss the historical background, legal framework, and overall concepts of origin. It will also highlight the difference between non-preferential and preferential origin and guide attendees in making origin determinations for imports and exports.

"Introduction to Country of Origin" - This course is approved by NCBFAA (The National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America, Inc). Attendees of Live Webinar are eligible for 1.5 CCS/CES credit up on full completion of the course.

Why Should You Attend:

All countries regulate the movement of goods across their borders. In most countries, this activity, for both import and exports, is governed by a customs agency or customs service. In the United States, since 2001’s 9/11, US imports are governed by the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Pre-dating 9/11, entering into force in 1994, the U. S. Customs Modernization Act (a Congressional Act), also known as the Mod Act, transferred the responsibility of adhering to all US import laws and regulations to a shared responsibility between CBP and the U.S. importer.

As the party primarily responsible for adherence to these laws and regulations with respect to imported goods, the importer should have a robust internal control program surrounding all its import activities. If you are a global trader and have any import or export activity, you are also subject, not only to your national customs laws and regulations, but also the globally-agreed upon trading rules established and adopted by all member nations of the World Trade organization (WTO).

The main pillars of all global trade reflect these three primary areas of determination:

  • Classification (what is it?)
  • Valuation (how much is it worth?)
  • Origin (where was it made?)

In this session, the instructor will focus on the basics of determining where a product is made.
