Please note that the preparation of a NAFTA certificate of origin confers certain legal rights, and imposes certain legal obligations and liabilities on the party signing the document. Similar rights obligations and liabilities attach to importers that claim NAFTA treatment. Certificates of origin should therefore be based on a careful inquiry into the terms of NAFTA. Certificates of origin must be in the posetion of the importer at the time preferential treatment is claimed and shall be presented to customs upon request. In order to avoid denials of your NAFTA claims, we ask that you provide us with copies of your certificate of origin prior to making entry. For further information concerning NAFTA and certificates of origin, please contact Guillermo Valencia, Roberto Jaques or Luis Leyva.
Another Important Notice: If you are the importer of record, payment to the broker will not relieve you of liability for Customs charges (duties, taxes, or other debts owed Customs) in the event the charges are not paid by the broker. Therefore, if you pay by check, Customs charges may be paid with separate check payable to the "U.S. Customs Service" which shall be delivered to Customs by the broker.
