Products are rarely sourced from start to finish in a single
country and our client’s products are no exception. Typically,
their products have raw materials that originate in several
countries. Because many countries require imported articles
to be marked with their country of origin, and imported products
often cannot be imported unless properly marked, we help our
clients navigate through the origin rules to identify the correct
country of origin of their products and to comply with onerous
country of origin marking requirements. When our clients’
marketing research indicates that one type of country of origin
marking is preferred to another, we diligently work with the
client to find a way to mark the product accordingly.
Similarly, we help our clients obtain relief from Customs in
those situations where a level playing field does not exist
with respect to the origin of the products in the marketplace.
We appreciate that our clients should not have to compete against
companies who choose to violate the law country of origin marking
We also work with clients to solve country of origin problems
related to assessment of antidumping duties and government
procurement opportunities, such as the Buy America Act.
