Country of Origin & Free Trade Agreements

U.S. Customs laws require each imported article produced abroad to be marked in a conspicuous place as legibly, indelibly and permanently as the nature of the article permits, with the English name of the country of origin, to indicate to the ultimate purchaser in the United States the name of the country in which the article was manufactured or produced.  Additionally, the correct determination of the origin of goods is critical in determining qualification under preferential free trade agreements (FTAs).

We will assist you in determining what FTAs may be applicable for your supply chain and how to qualify for your products under the FTA. In addition, we aid you in establishing internal control procedures to ensure continued validity of the goods’ origin.
