This webinar is a follow-up to the USMCA Automotive webinar presented on June 19th, 2020. It will take a deeper dive into the automotive rules of origin by focusing on how USMCA impacts the automotive industry in practice. We will walk through fact patterns from various segments of the automotive industry and levels of the automotive supply chain to demonstrate how USMCA applies to the relevant stakeholders from both a legal and practical perspective. This webinar will also address developments that have occurred since USMCA came into effect, including new guidance from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, emerging best practices, and issues that remain unresolved to date. While we will briefly cover the basic automotive rules of origin, this webinar is designed for participants that are familiar with the basic requirements of USMCA and are seeking further information on and analysis of the practical implications of USMCA on their business.
