U.S. Customs Form: CBP Form 3229 – Certificate of Origin

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Form 3229 is the Certificate of Origin which declares the country where the goods were produced. The country of origin of a product can have significant implications for what tariff rate the goods are subject to. The  subject to when imported into the United States. This is particularly true when the United States has negotiated a Free Trade Agreement with a particular country, which exempts certain products from that country from U.S. import duties.
