U.S. Country of Origin and Marking – Mastering the Rules and Avoiding Costly Mistakes Webinar

Articles that are imported into the United States are required by law to be marked to reflect their countries of origin; failure to do so can lead to a host of extremely unpleasant consequences for U.S. importers...

Such consequences as: detentions, seizures, demands for redelivery, liquidated damages, loss of preferential duty benefits, marking duties, civil and criminal penalties, etc. importers are required to exercise “reasonable care” over their import operations, which means that they are expected to implement sound processes for ensuring that accurate information is declared to CBP and all other import and other government agency formalities are fully satisfied—including the country of origin and marking of their merchandise. This webinar is intended to give executives, trade compliance managers, and personnel in purchasing, marketing, and logistics functions a thorough understanding of the rules of origin and marking requirements that apply to their products. International trade attorney Melissa Proctor (Miller Proctor Law PLLC) will bring her 25 years’ experience to provide an in-depth discussion of the applicable rules that every importer is expected to master. With real-world examples focusing on non-preferential and preferential rules of origin, rules of origin applied to sets, kits, and special classes of merchandise, rules of origin in the context of antidumping and countervailing duty cases, acceptable methods of marking imported goods and their containers, and MUCH more, you won’t want to miss this webinar!

The webinar will provide PowerPoint slides and include live video and commentary from Melissa Proctor, founder of the law firm of Miller Proctor Law PLLC. For more than 25 years, Melissa has advised companies on a wide array of issues involving compliance with import, export and international trade laws and regulations, as well as embargoes and economic sanctions programs.

Webinar participants are invited to submit questions during the webinar; the final 30 minutes of the webinar will be allotted to answering attendees’ questions. Each registrant will receive a copy of the presentation, certificate of completion, and access to the webinar. Register even if you cannot attend; we will send you access to the webinar recording along with a copy of the presentation!
