 Did you know if you are claiming the wrong preference criterion or your products don’t qualify at all, the fines can be substantial?

Don’t make the of just guessing and getting caught!

Learn about the various types of Free Trade Agreements. We will focus on FTAs with product specific Rules of Origin like USMCA.  Gain a solid understanding of how Rules of Origin
