P.A.E.I. and Tuttle Law

Webinar: Where Did I Come From?
Understanding U.S. Country of Origin Rules

Thursday, November 18, 2021
11:00 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. PDT
(2:00 to 3:30 p.m. EDT)

When a finished article is manufactured or assembled in the same country where its constituent components or materials are produced, there can be little doubt as to country of origin. However, in instances where components or materials are sourced from a country or countries other than where the final assembly occurs, determining country of origin is not so straight forward. This webinar highlights include:

  • Non-preferential trade rules of origin and the concept of “substantial transformation”
  • CBP’s Part 102 Rules of Origin – when do they apply?
  • Whose responsibility is it to determine origin and what are the impacts of non-compliance?
  • Determining origin for application of AD and/or CVD Orders and Section 301 duties
  • Government Procurement, the TAA on Country of Origin, and the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Acetris Health, LLC, v. United States, 949 F.3d 719 (Fed. Cir. 2020)
  • The Federal Trade Commission’s rules on “Made in USA” labeling and advertising
