The United-States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) recently went into effect on July 1, 2020, which ended the twenty-six year reign of NAFTA. While much of the agreement is like NAFTA, it is critical for manufacturers, importers, and exporters to understand the key differences, and how these changes may impact current operations.

During this one-hour webinar, Adrienne Braumiller, Founder & Partner of Braumiller Law Group, and Jennifer Horvath, Partner at Braumiller Law Group, will discuss:

  • Changes to rules of origin with a focus on the industry sectors (automotive, chemicals, rubber & plastics, textile) that are particularly impacted
  • Differences in the process for completing certificates of origin
  • Guidance for sourcing, recordkeeping and accounting, and customs entry processes to comply and prepare for USMCA audits
  • New regulations coming out of Canada and Mexico as a result of USMCA
