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? Are you aware of the 3 new FTA’s (Panama, S. Korea and Colombia)? If not come and learn about the differences between them and NAFTA.
