Unlike NAFTA, the USMCA does not have a specific form to use to enforce a preferential rate right under the agreement. Instead, any party that certifies that the goods comply with the rules of origin must at least contain certain pieces of data as defined in the claim support agreement. Customs generally needs other shipping documents; The certificate of origin is just one of those forms. It is the Colombian importer`s responsibility to apply for preferential duty negotiated by the ESTV for qualified products.
