Event Description

Reduce Customs Penalty Risk: File Compliant Certificate of Entry Forms

For the importer who files entries under NAFTA to receive duty free treatment of goods, knowing how to correctly complete U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Form 434, Certificate of Origin (C/O)—and satisfy all its data elements—is critical.

Form 434 is “used by Canada, Mexico, and the United States to certify that goods qualify for the preferential tariff treatment accorded by NAFTA,” says CBP. The exporter must complete the form—though a producer or manufacturer may complete a C/O to be used as a basis for an exporter’s C/O, according to the agency.

Join this session with expert Frances Tallant to gain a thorough understanding of how to correctly complete Form 434, and what could trip you up. You will learn: when the form should be completed and by whom, what each section of the form means to the party signing the form, who will require/request the completed (and signed) form, and the penalty for failing to submit a compliant form.

A compliant Form 434 is critical to your import efforts as it permits goods to be entered duty free into participating NAFTA countries. This session will help you mitigate the risk of customs penalties and fines for filing non-compliant entries under NAFTA.
