The certificate must be signed and dated by the certifier and must be accompanied by the following declaration: indicate whether the certifier is the exporter, manufacturer or importer in accordance with the three countries that have submitted a formal notification of ratification, and the new agreement will replace the current NAFTA and come into force on July 1, 2020. Include the name, address (including country), email address and phone number of the exporter if they differ from the certifier. This information is not necessary if the manufacturer has purchased the certificate of origin and does not know the identity of the exporter. The address of the exporter is the exit of the goods into the territory of a contracting party. 4. Decisions of origin extended as a result of the new CUSMA/USMCA/T-MEC must be made. Decisions on the origin of NAFTA will no longer be valid after the new agreement comes into force. One of the major changes to be made from this trade agreement is the abolition of the NAFTA Certificate of Origin.
Instead, the USMCA replaces the certificate of origin with a certification. In this regard, the USMCA will be more like other free trade agreements, such as Korean and Australian, which also use certification. In Parts 1, 2 and 3, we explained how, depending on the country you are in or in which country you are talking to, it is possible to refer to the new agreement with another acronym. In Canada, the agreement is referred to as «CUSMA»; In the United States, it is «USMCA» and in Mexico it is «T-MEC,» but no matter where you are in the world, the agreement is one in the same. 3. Exporter`s Name, Address and Contact Information (if by waiver from the Certifier) The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on July 1, 2020. Parties wishing to import duty-free «original products» into the United States, Mexico and Canada that benefit from the preferential benefits of the USMCA Free Trade Agreement must have a valid certificate of origin at the time of application, which is completed either by the exporter, the manufacturer or the importer. We have created a certificate of origin (PDF to complete), a standalone document containing the data elements needed to request preferential treatment under CUSMA for your shipment. The certifier should complete, sign and date it, then download it with FedEx® electronic business documents or print it out and apply it directly to the shipment. The highly anticipated date for the implementation of NAFTA 2.0 between Canada and Mexico is July 1, 2020 in just over a month.
If you`ve just joined us, this is the latest in a four-part Q-A series. On November 30, 2018, Canada, the United States and Mexico signed the new Canada-U.S.-Mexico (CUSMA) / United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) / Tratado between México, Estados Unidos y Canadé (T-MEC). This agreement will modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) by addressing current trade challenges in key industries such as agriculture and the automotive industry and by making improvements to facilitate the free movement of goods between the three countries. Rights-free access to markets continues and provisions have been introduced for important issues such as intellectual property, labour standards, gender equality and the rights of indigenous peoples. Include the name, address (including country), email address and phone number of the manufacturer, if they differ from the certifier or exporter, or, if there are multiple producers, indicate «various» or list the manufacturers.

The address of a producer is the place where the goods are manufactured in the territory of a contracting party.
