Special Duty Programs

There are a number of special programs available that can provide significant duty savings to importers. Duty-free or reduced duty treatment is potentially available through programs such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), Generalized System of Preferences, Caribbean Basin Initiative, Israeli Free Trade Agreement, West Bank/Gaza Strip, sub-Saharan Africa Trade Agreement, African Growth and Opportunity Act, and use of so-called 9801, 9802 or 807 Programs (involving the return of offshore assembly of American origin components). We counsel our clients on eligibility requirements and maximization of benefits under these special duty programs.
