Country of Origin Determination & Marking
Country of origin determinations can be remarkably complicated when a good is sourced from various countries and also when ascertaining the accurate country of origin to use a duty preference program. This is true since U.S. Customs regulations must be carefully obeyed, even when based upon a “substantial transformation” or tariff shift. TITA lawyers continually examine and counsel clients on how to correctly identify and mark the correct country of origin in yielding with both U.S. Customs and the “Made in the USA” rules of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
