Please join Peggy Chaplin Louie, Senior Attorney with Miller Proctor Law PLLC, for a live webinar sponsored by Lorman Education Services on January 13, 2021 from 1:00pm – 2:30pm ET. Articles that are imported into the United States are required by law to be marked to reflect their countries of origin. The failure to properly mark and declare the correct country of origin can result in a host of unpleasant consequences for U.S. importers—from detentions, seizures, demands for redelivery, liquidated damages, loss of preferential duty benefits and marking duties to civil and criminal penalties. This webinar is intended to give you a basic understanding of the U.S. rules of origin and marking requirements that apply to your products. The topics that will be addressed include:
  • Core Customs Compliance Areas
  • The Mod Act and the Importer’s Duty to Exercise Reasonable Care
  • U.S. Rules of Origin
  • U.S. Country of Origin Marking Rules
  • Key Exceptions to the Rules
  • Consequences of Noncompliance
  • Best Practices for Ensuring Proper Country of Origin and Marking
