Workshop: NAFTA

Don’t Assume North American Imports are Duty Free... You May Be Surprised

Pacific Customs Brokers is offering a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Workshop for both Canadian and U.S. companies. We will assist you in understanding your responsibilities under NAFTA, and will provide you with practical tools for completing certification of your products. In addition, we will provide instruction on the Rules of Origin and classification of your goods under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule. This session will be of interest to: business owners, operations managers, controllers, purchasers, logistics supervisors/coordinators and production managers importing and exporting within North America. This is a great opportunity for businesses with newly hired logistics staff to receive cost-effective training and/or refresh their awareness.
