The United States/Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) aka as CUSMA in Canada and T-MEC in Mexico replaced the NAFTA on July 1, 2020. The USMCA provides for the preferential treatment or entry of goods duty-free into each of the countries provided that the goods meet the strict rules of origin in the agreement and regulations. Certification of Origin is required for most goods that can qualify under the rules and must be completed by the producer, exporter, or importer of the goods. Failure to know the rules and properly complete the Certification of Origin and maintain proper documentation can result in severe penalties.
