NAFTA was created to ensure that goods traded among Canada, Mexico and the United States receive preferential tariff treatment. NAFTA grants benefits and reduces tariffs only on goods that qualify under the NAFTA rules of origin. This two-hour webinar outlines various methods for determining if your goods qualify as originating and the most effective process your company can use for making those determinations.

Audits and Compliance provides you with an overview of the Customs Modernization Act including a reasonable care checklist, an explanation of the audit procedures called “focused assessment,” and the current record-keeping requirements. There are chapters explaining how to classify your products under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule for proper duty rates, the correct value to declare to Customs on your invoices, and special import requirements on county of origin marking, quota and others.

When the United States enacted the Customs Modernization Act in 1993, it transferred responsibility for classifying goods from U.S. Customs to you, the importer of record. Now your company must be sure to properly classify all your imported goods, accurately report the value of them, and determine and pay the appropriate duties.

If your company is going to succeed in international trade, one of the most basic—and important—requirements is identifying the correct classification for your products. This book will teach you how to develop those harmonized code classification skills. While Doing Your Duty focuses on the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States used by importers, the tools and techniques it explores are equally applicable to exporters. In fact, an entire chapter of the book describes the export Schedule B codes along with issues unique to managing classification in the export arena. Throughout the book the author offers practical, actionable tips and suggestions for improving your classification accuracy and managing the classification process. In addition, the book provides an overview of the numerous free trade agreements and special duty programs available to both importers and exporters.

Too often, when a U.S. company and its personnel first engage in international trade, they expect that the laws, liabilities and responsibilities that apply to domestic transactions will apply to international transactions as well. That can be a costly mistake.

For U.S. companies, there’s probably no easier place to export than Canada. That’s why it’s America’s number one trading partner. But that doesn’t mean you can ignore the rules for exporting to Canada.

The Export Documentation and Shipping manual guides you step-by-step through the various layers of an international transaction beginning with the responsibilities and liabilities of the seller and the buyer. The manual will help you understand freight quotations, contracts of carriage, foreign country regulations, marine insurance and Incoterms. It will walk you through the process of properly completing your export documents. And it will help you establish the proper internal controls necessary to make your international transactions safer, more efficient and more profitable.

This book provides the documentation and procedures necessary to export goods to Canada. There are chapters on the distribution practices in Canada, payment and banking procedures, and an overview of NAFTA. This book also includes samples of the Shipper's Export Declaration, Pro Forma Invoice and Quotation, Invoices, Certificate of Origin, and many helpful charts and examples.

Banks report that the majority of presentations of documents against letters of credit are incorrect, resulting in unnecessary delays in collecting money due and generating extra bank fees. You can protect the assets of your company and more successfully complete an international sales transaction by learning how to avoid these errors on documents and what to do when discrepancies occur. The Export Letters of Credit and Drafts reference book will help you determine if a letter of credit is right for your company. It will help you instruct your international customers in opening a letter of credit and guide you through the procedures to take when you can't comply with the stipulations of the credit or collect your money. The manual also discusses several options that can help you offer creative and competitive financing options to your buyers while allowing you to receive immediate payment for the transaction.

No one can deny that the world is shrinking. It’s never been easier or less expensive to locate and communicate with people around the world. Keep in mind, however, that this new-found intimacy doesn’t necessarily translate to the mechanics of international trade. For most international transactions, exporters must still navigate a maze of obstacles—legal, cultural and other—that add a variety of challenges to their job. Export Regulations, Documentation & Procedures provides a detailed map for navigating this maze. The book opens with a helpful introduction on structuring foreign sales, including a detailed discussion of the crucial distinctions between foreign sales reps, agents and distributors. It discusses contract negotiation issues, Incoterms 2000, pricing, customs and tariff planning. It includes a full section on the use of SEDs/AES, forms of payment, packing, transport and insurance compliance. Sample documents are shown, and the book’s glossary has a full list of government and private export resources and contact numbers, along with an excellent index of trade term definitions.

Rely on this book to enter the Mexican market prepared, and you’ll find the profitable market that has enticed so many other U.S. exporters. Exporting to Mexico provides information on the documentation and procedures necessary to export products to Mexico. It includes chapters on the Incoterms 2000 (terms of sale); selling to Mexico through letters of credit; understanding Customs clearance procedures, product labeling and standards requirements; temporary entry of persons, vehicles and goods; the Maquiladora program; a profile of Mexico; and more.

Do you depend so much on your customs broker to manage your import entry process that nobody at your company really knows what they are doing? If so, you’re setting yourself up for trouble. Too many importers find out too late that they’re primarily accountable for any errors that their broker makes. The more you collaborate with your broker the more compliant your import program will be. The more you understand about the import entry processes, the more you will be able to help them help you! Import Regulations, Procedures and Guidelines delves into the regulatory aspects of the U.S. import process specifically U.S. Customs entry so that you’ll have the knowledge you need to work successfully with your broker. The book focuses on the five core competencies required to make accurate Customs entries and ensure compliance with U.S. Customs regulations: Value, Country of Origin, Classification, Duty and Record Keeping.

When negotiating an international sales contract, both parties need to pay as much attention to the shipping terms as to the sales price. When does the responsibility for transporting the goods switch from the seller to the buyer? Which party is responsible for insuring the goods and at what point does that liability shift? To help clarify the answers to these questions and more, the International Chamber of Commerce has created a set of 13 trade terms—called Incoterms—that defines the exact responsibilities and liabilities of both the buyer and seller while the merchandise is in transit. The IBT Guide to Incoterms 2000 book fully and clearly defines each of the Incoterms that became effective in January 2000, which are still the most current set of international trade terms. The book includes a number of case studies that demonstrate the use of the different terms in real-life situations. This is an important book that should be on the desk of every international trade professional.

There are many reasons why a company begins importing. For example, you may wish to reduce your product costs, introduce a new product that’s not currently available in your market, or take advantage of new technologies only available in a foreign market. But as anyone engaged in international trade can tell you, there's a lot more to importing than simply placing an order. You must pay for the goods, arrange for transportation, and clear the goods through Customs paying all associated duties and taxes and being mindful of any import quotas or other restrictions.

NAFTA simultaneously represents one of the greatest business opportunities and challenges facing businesses in North America today. While on one hand NAFTA eliminates trade barriers between Canada, Mexico and the United States, on the other it relies on a complex set of rules that make participation in the agreement cumbersome. This publication is intended as a teaching tool to help businesses understand the NAFTA and to develop practical business processes for participating in the free trade agreement. The book was designed predominantly with U.S. exporters and importers in mind. As such it draws not just from the NAFTA treaty but also references the U.S. regulations and interpretations issued by U.S. regulators. Mexican and Canadian importers and exporters will also find this textbook useful. Whenever possible the author has included references to Canadian and Mexican resources.

While NAFTA was supposed to make exporting to Canada and Mexico easier, anyone who has prepared the NAFTA Certificate of Origin knows it can be anything but. We created this guide specifically for the practitioners who must deal directly with NAFTA documents, rules and regulations.

You thought reaching agreement on an international sales contract was hard. But now you have to move the goods from one country to another before you get paid. And you have to do it within the terms of the sales agreement and without incurring a lot of unexpected expenses.

The NAFTA Documentation and Procedures book provides a complete overview of NAFTA regulations and their implications for trade with Mexico, Canada and the United States. A 10-step plan for implementing NAFTA procedures at your company helps you understand and apply the NAFTA rules and regulations for all your NAFTA shipments.

This seminar is the perfect overview of the transportation process—whether you're shipping by ocean or air. Learn the steps you need to follow to move your products affordably, securely and within budget. Come to this one-day seminar armed with your questions. Small class sizes and a knowledgeable teacher allow for a great interaction between attendees and the instructor.

The book includes forms to identify bills of materials, to determine the NAFTA origin status, to provide instructions to vendors to complete the necessary forms to support the certificate of origin, as well as sample letters to customs to determine or appeal rulings on individual products. Sample NAFTA, Mexican Certificates of Origin and Canada Customs Invoices are provided.

All attendees take home a reference book to assist you every day on the job. For a c o mpl ete d escr iption an d agen d a f or each semin ar , v isit www.i-b -t.n et/semin ar s

If your company is engaged in international trade—be it importing, exporting or some of both—you need to move the goods from the seller to the buyer. How you move those goods and who you use to physically transport them can make a huge difference in whether you make or lose money on the transaction. This reference book describes the key elements of the international supply chain and the various people who affect the pick-up and delivery of goods from the point of origin to the place of final delivery. It also explains the underlying legal and regulatory authority that allows these people to act on behalf of the buyer and/or seller. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned professional, Understanding the International Supply Chain gives you understandable, real-world knowledge that you can use to successfully do your job and avoid the kind of late deliveries, bungled payments, and expensive fines and penalties that have afflicted too many of your peers. s ee th e in sid e b ack cov er f or a l ist of IBT semin ar d ates an d l ocation s. order N O W !

Saddle Brook, NJ

This one-day seminar will help you understand those Rules of Origin, apply them to your company's products, and then correctly complete and maintain the proper documentation to take advantage of the reduced tariffs under NAFTA. NAFTA is the first of the so-called “modern” free trade agreements, which are all based on classifying products under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule. While each free trade agreement is unique, mastering the basics of origination under NAFTA will help you gain benefits from all the modern free trade agreements for which you qualify.

San Diego, CA

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was supposed to make it easier to move goods between the United States, Canada and Mexico. But don't tell that to someone charged with understanding the Rules of Origin for classifying their products under NAFTA.
