Canadian Customs Brokers Inc - free trade

Services: Free Trade / Origin of Goods

The North-American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) allows importers substantial and sometimes complete reductions of customs duties on qualifying imported goods.

To take advantage of such an agreement, importers must ensure that their goods are covered by a valid certificate of origin. Exporters are the persons who issue free trade certificates of origin, and must be prepared to satisfactory evidence that the goods qualify under the rules of origin. Our advisors can conduct origin analyses to determine the origin of your goods. In an instance where the goods cannot be classified under a free trade agreement, CCB advisors can recommend solutions, which if acted upon could render the good as originating under a particular free trade agreement.

Certificate of Origin

CCB’s experts can obtain, verify, register, renew and manage all your certificates of origin. Furthermore, we can respond on your behalf to requests from the government and supply technical assistance to your suppliers. We can also secure from the Canadian and American Customs authorities confirmation (Advanced Ruling) of the origin of your imported goods in order to protect you from future duty assessments, accrued interest and/or of penalties.
