The Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) came into force on July 1, 2020, bringing significant changes to the rules for trade and investment protection between the three countries.
Blakes International Trade lawyers will discuss key tools on how to benefit from the new CUSMA since its recent implementation. They will also provide an overview of some of the core provisions that have taken effect as of July 1. These include the new rules for certification of origin, changes to the low value shipment and de minimis thresholds, optional advance rulings to support CUSMA origin claims, new rules for verifications, dispute resolution mechanisms, and more.
