Seminars to address tariff classification, NAFTA
August 11, 2017,
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte Roundtable of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals will host two seminars, Sept. 19-20, examining classification of the U.S. Harmonized Tariff Schedule and developments in the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The sessions, which take place at Central Piedmont Community College at 3210 CPCC Harris Campus Dr. here, are appropriate for customs compliance professionals both on the 3PL/customs broker and the shipper/importer sides of the business. Both seminars include lunch with registration.
The NAFTA seminar, for which a working knowledge of harmonized tariff schedule classification is recommended, takes place 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Sept. 20. Attendees will learn: how made in Canada, Mexico or the United States does not mean that your goods qualify for duty exemption benefits under NAFTA; how to qualify (originate) your goods; special provisions for taking advantage of NAFTA; NAFTA’s treatment of the special sectors of automotive, agriculture, textiles and electronics; how to complete the official certificate of origin; options for completing the official certificate when requested by a domestic customer; best practices for managing a certificate or origin; and insights into other free trade agreements.
