On January 1, 2003, the final tariff reduction was implemented in the Canada-Mexico exit schedule. The Mexican government has clearly emphasized its commitment to NAFTA by clearly opposing NAFTA. Another good example of our commitment to continued trade liberalization through NAFTA is the change in rules of origin for certain products, including alcoholic beverages and crude oil, which was also implemented on January 1. These amendments allow manufacturers of these products to qualify for duty-free treatment under NAFTA. To argue for NAFTA preference, you need a certificate of origin form. It must be filled and signed by the exporter of the products. If the exporter is not the producer, the exporter can complete the certificate on the basis of the knowledge that the products come from the NAFTA region; The manufacturer`s written statement that the products originated in the NAFTA region should be invoked; a duly completed and signed certificate of origin voluntarily made available to the exporter by the manufacturer. For more information on the NAFTA Certificate of Origin, please contact the Canadian Border Services Agency. In addition to the above rules of origin, there may be other ways to qualify your product: NAFTA has no influence on the abandonment of tariffs agreed under the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement. The exit from free trade rights was completed on 1 January 1998. On that date, virtually all tariffs on trade in goods originating between Canada and the United States were eliminated. Some products are still subject to tariffs in Canada`s air sectors (.
B, for example, eggs, dairy products and poultry products). In the United States, tariffs on certain products such as sugar, dairy products, peanuts and cotton are maintained. Case 8: For each property described in box 5, say “YES” if you are the producer of the property. If you are not the producer of the products, indicate “NO” followed by (1), (2) or (3), depending on whether this certificate is based on: (1) your knowledge of the qualification of well-being as a product of origin; (2) confidence in the manufacturer`s written representation (with a certificate of origin) that the products may be considered original products; or (3) a certificate completed and signed for products voluntarily made available to the exporter by the manufacturer. The U.S. scales have columns called “General” and “Special,” in the Canadian tariff the corresponding columns are with “MFN tariff” and “applicable preferential rates.” If the phrase “free” mentioned in the “General/MFN” column is “free,” the rate of duty is zero. Mexico`s customs information site has a section that says “Tariff applies to other countries in the world.” If the sentence mentioned here is “ex,” the rate of duty is zero. All products classified under these sub-positions or customs numbers are exempt from customs duties and the NAFTA certificate of origin is not required. To obtain the preferential rate set in NAFTA, the product must comply with the current rule of origin.
