CBP Released Updated USMCA Interim Implementing Instructions
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released updated interim implementation instructions regarding the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The agreement is set to replace NAFTA on July 1, 2020, and these instructions replaced the previous interim implementation instructions issued on April 20, 2020.
These implementation instructions provide an outline for ensuring compliance when USMCA goes into effect, particularly with respect to preferential tariff claims.
Trans-Border will continue to monitor this developing situation and provide updates as needed. If you have any questions, please reach out to Bill Carey, Import Compliance Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 493-9444.
Certificate of Origin Template
Once USMCA takes effect, an importer’s current NAFTA certificate of origin will no longer apply. We have developed a template that includes the minimum data elements required for USMCA Certificate of Origins.
