For more than two decades, U.S. exporters have been using the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for greater access to customers outside of the U.S., to gain an edge over their competitors, and to lower costs for their customers. Preferential tariff treatment is provided under the NAFTA for qualifying goods, and U.S. exporters seeking to take advantage of NAFTA benefits must have a firm understanding of the various product eligibility and documentary requirements. Sound internal policies and procedures must also be implemented to ensure companies’ ongoing compliance. As the U.S., Canada and Mexico are in the midst of talks to modernize the agreement, U.S. exporters need to stay up-to-date on the reported developments in the negotiation process to assess how changes to the agreement may impact their operations and international supply chains.

This webinar, presented by Melissa Proctor of Miller Proctor Law PLLC, will provide an update on the modernization efforts currently underway and give U.S. exporters a firm understanding of the NAFTA rules and requirements, as well as effective strategies for taking full advantage of this free trade agreement. Specific topics will include:

  • Overview of the NAFTA and Its Key Benefits
  • Core Terms and Definitions of the NAFTA
  • Understanding the NAFTA Rules of Origin
  • Determining Product Eligibility and Using the Correct Preference Criterion
  • NAFTA Certificates of Origin
  • Recordkeeping Requirements
  • Penalties for Non-Compliance
  • Best Practices and Proven Strategies for Successful Utilization of the NAFTA
  • Latest Developments in the Negotiations to Modernize the NAFTA

The webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Melissa Proctor, founder of Miller Proctor Law PLLC, headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona. For more than 20 years, Melissa has advised companies on a wide array of issues involving compliance with export, customs and international trade laws and regulations, as well as embargoes and economic sanctions programs.
