the NAFTA Certificate of Origin
NAFTA Certificate of Origin is used by Canada, Mexico,
Puerto Rico, and the United States to determine if goods
imported into their countries receive reduced or eliminated
duty as specified by the North American Free Trade Agreement
forms completed online, this application is designed for
goods whose origin is the U.S. or Puerto Rico only. The
NAFTA Certificate of Origin is also available as a paperless
document, which can be transmitted electronically as part
of your Paperless Invoice package (where available). When
shipping from the U.S. or Canada, prepare one original
and two copies of the invoice. When shipping from Puerto
Rico, prepare one original and one copy.
NAFTA Certificate of Origin must be attached to an invoice
if the shipment is valued at greater than:
and is being sent to a Mexican destination from Canada
or the U.S.
$1,600CAD (Canadian dollars) and is being sent to a Canadian
destination from Mexico or the U.S.
US$2,500 and is being sent to a U.S. destination from
Canada or Mexico.
valued at less than the above amounts do not require a
NAFTA Certificate of Origin. Instead, the customer should
type the following statement on the shipment's invoice:
"I hereby certify that the good covered by this shipment
qualifies as an originating good for purposes of preferential
tariff treatment under the NAFTA."
For purposes of obtaining preferential tariff treatment,
this document must be completed legibly (print or type)
and in full by the exporter and be in the possession of
the importer at the time the declaration is made. This
document may also be completed voluntarily by the producer
for use by the exporter.
