Determining marking and country of origin for goods made in one country is easy – it’s the country of production. However, marking and origin is a much more complicated process for goods assembled or processed in more than one country using domestic and foreign parts.
The new “Made in USA” marking requirements, effective as of August 13, exemplify the many challenges companies face when making marking and origin determinations, such as knowing when the country of origin shifts from one country to another and when substantial transformation or double transformation takes place.
Join Suzanne Richer, Director of the Global Trade Academy, for a focused discussion on how to determine origin and marking to avoid fines and penalties. You’ll learn how to:
- Define what country of origin means
- Identify foreign goods returned using HTS subheading 9801.00.10
- Develop best practices for managing marking and origin decisions
- Establish how the new FTC ruling influences the use of “Made in USA” marking on products
- Understand general marking requirements and marking for specific commodities
- Recognize what foreign content is allowed in California to be considered “Made in America”
