Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) UPDATE
Please be advised the CPTPP will be starting up December 30th
Tariff code 33 is to be used if we have a certificate
There is no specific document and it could be on the invoice itself - but the invoice would require the Classification and origin criteria to be a proper document
The rules are very similar to NAFTA – certificate required – direct shipment
Important exceptions – the importer can make up the certificate as well as the exporter or producer - We have 4 years to claim back
