Topic Background:

The Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) is used by over 200 countries, territories, or customs unions around the world to assign a number to each product to establish the appropriate duty that should be paid when goods are imported into a country. The HTS is also used to determine whether goods are subject to quotas and free trade agreements. Proper classification is vital for establishing eligibility under many free trade agreements, i.e. completion of the NAFTA Certificate of Origin for trade between U.S., Canada, and Mexico as well as trade agreements between the U.S. and Chile, Singapore, Australia, the Central America-Dominican Republic, Bahrain, Oman, Peru, S. Korea, Colombia, and Panama.

The Schedule B is unique to the United States and is used for reporting a number to the U.S. Census for exports from the United States to other countries.

NAFTA is the largest free trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The NAFTA provides for the entry of goods duty-free into each of the countries provided that the goods meet the strict rules of origin in the agreement. A NAFTA Certificate of Origin is required for most goods that can qualify under the rules and must be completed by the exporter and in possession of the importer when the goods are entered into the importing country. Failure to know the rules and properly complete the NAFTA Certificate of Origin and maintain proper documentation can result in severe penalties.

Each attendee will receive two 2015 edition reference books, titled "Tariff Classification Using the Harmonized Tariff Schedule" and "NAFTA Rules of Origin and Documentation" by Jan Seal; and workshop materials (valued up to $168).
