Basics of NAFTA

In 2010, U.S. goods and services trade with NAFTA totaled $980 billion. Canada and Mexico are Michigan's top trading partners, accounting for 70% of Michigan's global trade.

It is critical for businesses buying or selling to/from Canada or Mexico to have a NAFTA compliance program. In each NAFTA country, Customs entities place the burden of certification proof on the exporters and importers of record. Fines and/or penalties for incorrect or false certifications may be assessed to one or both parties involved in the sale.
