CBP Table: Free Trade Agreement and Preferential Trade Legislation Comparison – Non-Textiles


An easy-to-use summary of the most common non-textile duty preference programs administered by Customs and Border Protection (CBP), entitled “Free Trade Agreement and Preferential Trade Legislation Comparison—Non-Textiles”, is now posted here.

Its table-like structure highlights the programs’ many similarities and dissimilarities.

The comparison document was conceived as a preference program tool; it includes citations to the General Notes and regulations, and is intended to complement, rather than displace these and other reference materials. Additional resources are accessible from the International Agreements page of the CBP website.
