The usmca: a 21st century trade agreement
We understand that completing export documents can be time-consuming and stressful. Here’s a Certificate of Origin from the United States of America to Korea that can help you get through this shipment. It’s just one of dozens of export forms that Shipping Solutions® has beautifully printed and completed.
The United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement, also known as KORUS, went into effect on May 15, 2012. Except for NAFTA, the importer is responsible for asserting preferential treatment under most U.S. free trade agreements. The information needed to support the claim will, in most cases, have to be supplied by the goods’ producer or exporter.
While there is no mandatory form for certifying origin, there are some data elements that must be included, and a sample certificate of origin form with those data elements has been presented.
If you create a certificate of origin for the importer, keep it for at least five years after the date of importation, along with all records and supporting documents pertaining to the goods’ origin.

• Once you have a Harmonized Tariff Schedule product classification code, use our “Tariff Tool” to calculate the new, preferential tariff rate for your exports and imports under the FTA. http://export.gov/fta/ftatarifftool/TariffSearch.aspx is the URL for the Tariff Tool.
• The United States International Trade Commission has also prepared a publication that lists preferential tariff rates for Korean products entering the United States. The Harmonized Tariff Codes and their respective tariff rates under the FTA are listed in ITC Publication No. 4308 (http://www.usitc.gov/publications/tariff affairs/USITCPub4308.pdf).
• The Korean Customs Service has also set up a page that provides tariff rates for goods exported from the United States to Korea. http://fta.customs.go.kr/ is the Korean Customs Service’s website (in Korean). Exporting to Korea is also covered on the Korean Embassy’s website, http://www.USKoreaConnect.org.
• For certifying origin, the FTA uses a “knowledge-based” system. This means that an exporter, producer, or importer may certify that a product is produced under the FTA in order to support an importer’s claim of preferential tariff treatment. An importer’s own understanding that the good is originating may also be used to support a claim.
Rules of origin facilitator: your gateway to trade agreements
While the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement has gotten a lot of press, a lesser-known US trade agreement has also been reworked. “It was a Hillary Clinton disaster, a deal that should’ve never been made,” President Trump said in April of 2017, referring to the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement (commonly referred to as “KORUS”). 1 “We’ll either terminate or negotiate,” Trump said he told the South Koreans. We have the option of terminating.” 2 This set the stage for a low-key trade renegotiation that would become Trump’s first trade agreement.
The KORUS renegotiation is a good example of Trump’s trade dealmaking in action. As we’ll see below, the renegotiation resulted in only minor modifications to the agreement, suggesting that Trump’s trade policy may not always match his rhetoric. However, because the administration’s concerns about trade with Korea have always been less prominent than its concerns about trade with other trading partners, the KORUS talks’ conclusion with only minor modifications may merely reflect the administration’s emphasis on other areas of trade policy rather than an indication of its overall approach to trade policy.

In this article, I’ll discuss one of the most valuable services provided by a chamber of commerce to exporters: export documents. Specifically, their role in assisting you in the creation of an origin certificate.
A certificate of origin verifies the country of origin of the goods, and it may be requested by the government of the country into which your goods are being imported. It’s also widely used to figure out how much duty the importer will have to pay to bring your goods into the country.
A generic certificate of origin form that contains information about the exporter and importer, the products’ description and harmonized tariff code, and the country of origin is accepted by most countries.
Importers rely heavily on their U.S. vendors for assistance and cooperation in making accurate and well-documented declarations of origin. The exporter normally prepares these certificates, which are then stamped by the local chamber of commerce.
The most common type of certificate issued by chambers of commerce, also known as a standard or generic certificate of origin. Because many FTAs have their own kinds of documents, these certificates state that the products’ country of origin does not qualify for any preferential treatment under a free trade agreement (FTA).
