The US-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) / Canada-US-Mexico (CUSMA) / México-Estados Unidos-Canadá (T-MEC) agreement is replacing the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)
Ongoing certification of products is still important for the new agreement. A new USMCA / CUSMA / T-MEC certificate doesn’t currently exist. Our recommendation is to prepare a certification statement that includes the required minimum data requirements.
ANNEX 5-A Minimum Data Requirements
We’ve provided a suggested format to assist our customers with certifying products under the USMCA / CUSMA / T-MEC. Link here.
The USMCA / CUSMA / T-MEC will come into force on July 1, 2020, continuing the elimination of most of the customs duties on goods imported from the US, Canada or Mexico.
