Are You USMCA Ready?
Posted: Wed Jul 15, 2020 12:19 pm
Effective July 1, 2020, trade throughout North America will change. The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is replacing the long-standing North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which has been in force since 1994. For some companies, the USMCA offers benefits and protection for US jobs. For others, the USMCA comes with requirements that are more stringent than NAFTA. For all importers and exporters that do business with Canada and Mexico, the USMCA will require companies to reevaluate their regulatory compliance practices in order to maximize these benefits and comply with new requirements.
