The certificate of origin of the goods may be provided by the exporter, importer or manufacturer of the goods. When someone other than the manufacturer (for example. B the exporter) issues the certificate, it must rely on one of the following mentions: As a general rule, the certificate of origin certifies that the goods were manufactured, manufactured or processed in a given country (in this case the United States or Chile). The exporter of goods is entitled to benefits subject to the obligation to apply this certificate. The international protocol requires that it be referred to as a free trade agreement that uses the country where a person resides first. That`s why it`s called USMCA in the United States. In Canada, it is officially known as the Canada-U.S.-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) in English and the Canada-U.S.-Mexico Agreement (ACEUM) in French. In Mexico, it is called Tratado entre México, Estados Unidos y Canadé (T-MEC). Free trade agreements (FTAs) between the United States and other countries use a certificate of origin to demonstrate that the products on the form can receive specific tariff treatment in accordance with the provisions of the free trade agreement. The central American-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) designates the importer with the responsibility of requesting preferential tariff treatment under the agreement. The importer should cooperate with the U.S. exporter to ensure that a U.S. property meets the corresponding CAFTA-DR rule of origin before making a claim.
It is the Colombian importer`s responsibility to apply for preferential duty negotiated by the ESTV for qualified products. However, the Colombian importer, customs broker or customs service may ask the exporter or producer to provide a written or electronic certificate or other information in support of the importer`s debt. Although there is no required form for the certificate of origin, it is a form often used by many exporters and importers. In some cases, a considerable amount of research on inputs in the manufacture of products is needed to determine its origin. Many exporters and importers believe that the declaration of origin only takes place at the time of customs clearance, which creates a sense of urgency when determining the origin of the goods. To get the rate reduced immediately, that`s right. However, the importer has another option. The importer may pay the non-preferential duties at the time of customs clearance of the goods and has one year from the date of import of the goods to request reimbursement of excessive duties paid as a result of the preferential tariff treatment not granted. This may be the case when the information needed to establish the origin of the goods is not available at the time of transfer.
On the date of the restitution application, the importer is required to provide a written statement regarding the original character of the products and, at the request of the customs authority, a certificate of origin or any other indication that the product is considered originating; and other documents relating to the importation of goods that customs authorities may require.
