CBP Extends Deadline to Submit Comments on Proposed Changes to Rule of Origin on Imported Goods

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a notice in Monday's Federal Register extending the deadline from September 23, 2008 to October 23, 2008 for interested parties to submit comments on the proposed rule that would significantly change the way that country of origin determinations are made on merchandise imported into the U.S.

As we reported, on July 25, 2008, CBP published a notice of proposed rulemaking that would amend CBP's regulations to replace the "substantial transformation" test for determining the country of origin of imported merchandise with the NAFTA-like rules of origin set forth in 19 CFR Part 102.

CBP stated that it proposed this change because the tariff shift rules set forth in NAFTA and other recently negotiated free trade agreements "have proven to be more objective and transparent and provide greater predictability in determining the country of origin of imported merchandise than the system of case-by-case adjudication they would replace."
