NAFTA Certification and Rules of Origin

(contact the ITC for specific dates)

  • Does your company currently export or sell to someone who exports to Canada or Mexico?

  • Are your customers requesting a NAFTA Certificate of Origin for the goods you sell nationally?

  • Are you an indirect NAFTA exporter?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you should attend these workshops to improve your understanding of NAFTA documentation and determine whether your company's products qualify for NAFTA preferential treatment.
