Country of Origin & Marking

The country in which a foreign good was grown, produced, or manufactured generally determines the Country of Origin. The origin plays a vital role in the goods admissibility, duty rate, qualification for special trade programs, antidumping and countervailing. In addition, generally all foreign goods are subject to marking requirements, which almost always includes country of origin marking. Improperly marking a good may result in importation delays, added expense to rectify the markings, liquidated damages, seizure of goods, or penalties. Our firm assists in determining the correct origin of merchandise and how to properly mark goods prior to import, including “Made in USA” claims.
