Understand the rules that are required to classify products in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule. Learn to minimize errors in classification and better prepare companies for import/export audits from the government. The webinar will also assist companies who are eligible for free trade agreements, ex. NAFTA, and other agreements, in properly completing Certificates of Origin.

Why Should You Attend:

The World Customs Organization (WCO) revises the Harmonized Tariff Schedule once every five years at the international level of the harmonized tariff number (first six digits). These amendments went into effect on January 1, 2017. In addition, each member country can make their own modifications beyond the first six digits. In this training program, participants will learn some of the new provisions that may benefit your company with free duty rates.
