Before Import, Classifying Goods

In order to be eligible to use a free trade agreement, or tariff code, the imported goods must originate in a country that is a party to that particular tariff treatment associated with the country of import.

Proof of Origin

Most rules of origin are based on international trade conventions ruled from the World Customs Organization, decided upon in summits and member countries whom become signatories to the trade agreements established. Importers must provide a proof of origin, providing material data sheet to justify how a ruling was completed from the country of export.
