Worth 4.5 CCS CEUs, this course is designed to give a general overview of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for customs brokers. NAFTA may apply to shipments imported via air, sea or land border. Customs brokers must learn how to properly process an article for entry with Canada or Mexico as the country of origin. In order to do this it is important to learn how to determine eligibility. To verify the accuracy and completeness of the certificates received, the broker must know what the rules of origin mean and when to question the information. They must also understand the ramifications of incorrect processing. Special provisions for NAFTA goods in Chapters 98 and 99 (i.e., tariff preference level) are covered, along with determining the duty and merchandise processing fees for NAFTA goods. Entry processing using the certificate of origin and post entry activities (e.g., protest, 520(d) and reconciliation) for obtaining refunds on entries for which NAFTA was not claimed are also briefly discussed.
