CBP Announces New USMCA Center to Help Trade Community

On July 1, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) will enter into force. CBP recently announced the opening of a new USMCA Center to assist in implementation of the agreement. The center will allow CBP to communicate with the trade community at large, “including traders, brokers, freight forwarders and producers” on operational, legal, and other coordination matters. Officials at the center will provide guidance to stakeholders within the trade community and disseminate information regarding the transition to ensure transparency and coordination.

The USMCA aimed to modernize and replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, with a focus on intellectual property enforcement, protection of trade secrets, digital trade, and worker representation and labor rights. The full text with information on the USMCA can be found here.
