Description of the Topic:
NAFTA is the largest free trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. The NAFTA provides for the entry of goods duty-free into each of the countries provided that the goods meet the strict rules of origin in the agreement.

Failure to know the rules and properly complete the NAFTA Certificate of Origin and maintain proper documentation can result in severe penalties.
