Qualifying and certifying products under NAFTA and other free trade agreements can be time consuming and risky.
Knowledge- and Labor-Intensive to do Manually
Using the preferential duty rates available under NAFTA and other international trade agreements is one of the best strategies to lower costs.
However, just because goods are purchased or shipped from a NAFTA or FTA country doesn't mean they qualify for preferential rates: they must be certified as originating. Qualifying and certifying is very knowledge intensive, time consuming, and prone to compliance errors.
