Introduction to NAFTA

        How many times have you shipped to Canada/Mexico and simply filled out a NAFTA certificate based on your customers' instructions? Did you have any supporting documentation showing how you researched the rules of origin and obtained any manufactures affidavits proving your goods qualify for NAFTA? Have you documented your research on your bill of materials as to how your goods qualify? Do you know if your goods have a duty associated with them or where to go to get this information?
