3502.11 to 3502.19 is an original character when manufactured on the territory of one or more contracting parties. Note 1: In determining the origin of a commodity in this chapter, the rule applicable to these products applies only to the component that determines the tariff classification of goods and this element must meet the requirements for changes to existing legislation. A credit for chapters 28 to 38, with the exception of a quality of No. 33.01 or sub-positions 3502.11 to 3502.19 which, in the territory of one or more contracting parties, moves from one classification to another due to the separation of one or more substances from a mixture obtained by man, should not be treated as an original product, unless the isolated material is subjected to a chemical reaction in the area of one or more of the contracting parties. In many cases, the old NAFTA rules of origin have changed. For some products, the rVC (regional Value Content) rules have been removed; for others, they have been added. (b) the specific rule or tax rate applicable to a specific position, sub-position or tariff position is fixed directly next to the position, sub-position or tariff position; Importers should review the rules of origin specific to the products in Usmca Schedule 4-B to determine whether their products can receive preferential treatment under the new agreement. As of July 1, 2020, General Note 11 of the U.S. Harmonized Customs Plan (HTSUS) will contain both the general and specific rules of origin, definitions and related provisions applicable to USMCA products.

Importers can benefit from USMCA treatment by using a specific program indicator ("S" or "S") in the entry documentation. Under the USMCA, sewing threads, handheld materials and etlsikes in clothing must come from countries in the region. For finished textiles, coated materials (plastic) are also needed to be native to the region. This provision may lead to the creation of new domestic suppliers, as these materials are often imported from Asian countries. The regional Value Content (RVC) rules require a good one to contain a certain percentage of the FREI trade agreement. To benefit from a free trade agreement, your product must have added value from the partner country or the neighbouring countries of the United States or the free trade agreement. This value could be derived from the cost of traffic jams or skilled labour. Each FTA text has its own product-specific rules of origin, which prohibit the RVC method or formula that you can use to qualify your product for a preferential rate. Keep in mind that not all products may be subject to the rules of the RVC: a balance of chapters 28 to 38, with the exception of the good of chapters 28, 29, 32 or 38, position 33.01, or subheadings 3502.11 to 3502.19; is an original trait when deliberate and controlled modification of the particle size of a property, including micronization by the resolution of a polymer and subsequent felling, which is not done solely by grinding or pressing, on the territory of one or more of the contracting parts, resulting in a set-up with a defined particle size. , a distribution of particle size or a defined surface that is relevant to the resulting products and has essential physical or chemical properties that differ from raw materials. The new rules challenge importers, exporters and manufacturers to certify THE USMCA authorization and protect any preferential tariff treatment they previously enjoyed under NAFTA.

However, the arrival of the USMCA also offers companies the opportunity to re-evaluate previously ineligible products and adapt their supply chains to obtain favourable tariff and customs treatment.
