Course description

We live in the most dynamic trade regulations environment of our lifetime. With the increased tariffs comes a maniacal focus on enforcement and accurate tariff number assignment. Join our workshop to ensure you are assigning the correct US HTS classifications to your goods. The event will be simple enough for new classifiers and also provide new tips for the more seasoned trade personnel.

How do I determine the country of origin of my products?

Duty rates, preferential trade agreements, trade sanctions and import quotas are regulated according to country of origin. Because of the revenue and admissibility issues involved, US Customs is vigilant about verifying accurate country of origin.

Join us to learn how these rules apply to you.
