To register, click here
Articles that are imported into the United States are required by law to be marked to reflect their
countries of origin. The failure to properly mark and declare the correct country of origin to U.S.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) can lead to a host of extremely unpleasant consequences for
U.S. importers—detentions, seizures, demands for redelivery, liquidated damages, loss of preferential
duty benefits, marking duties, civil and criminal penalties, etc. U.S. importers are required to exercise
“reasonable care” over their import operations, which means that they are expected to implement
sound processes for ensuring that accurate information is declared to CBP and all other import and
other U.S. government agency formalities are fully satisfied—including the country of origin and
marking of their merchandise. This webinar is intended to give executives, trade compliance
managers, and personnel in purchasing, marketing, and logistics functions a thorough understanding
of the U.S. rules of origin and marking requirements that apply to their products. International trade
attorney Melissa Proctor (Miller Proctor Law PLLC) will bring her 25 years’ experience to provide an
in-depth discussion of the applicable rules that every importer is expected to master. With real-world
examples focusing on non-preferential and preferential rules of origin, rules of origin applied to sets,
kits, and special classes of merchandise, rules of origin in the context of antidumping and
countervailing duty cases, acceptable methods of marking imported goods and their containers, and
MUCH more, you won’t want to miss this webinar!
This webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary, with a Q & A session
following the presentation.
