    • (b) where, in accordance with the Harmonized System, a heading includes parts of goods by application of a Section Note or Chapter Note of the Harmonized System and the subheadings under that heading do not include a subheading designated “Parts”, a subheading designated “Other” under that heading shall be considered to cover only the goods and parts of the goods that are themselves classified under that subheading.

  • (6) For purposes of subsection (2), where Schedule I sets out two or more alternative rules for the tariff provision under which a good is classified, if the good satisfies the requirements of one of those rules, it need not satisfy the requirements of another of the rules in order to qualify as an originating good.

  • (7) A good originates in the territory of a NAFTA country if the good is referred to in Table 308.1.1 of Section B of Annex 308.1 to Chapter Three of the Agreement and is imported from the territory of a NAFTA country at a time when the NAFTA countries’ most-favoured-nation rate of duty for that good is in accordance with paragraph 1 of Section A of that Annex.

  • (8) For purposes of determining whether non-originating materials undergo an applicable change in tariff classification, a self-produced material may, at the choice of the producer of that material, be considered as a material used in the production of a good into which the self-produced material is incorporated.

  • (9) The following example is an “Example” as referred to in subsection 2(4).

    Example: Self-produced Materials as Materials for Purposes of Determining Whether Non-originating Materials Undergo an Applicable Change in Tariff Classification

    Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, produces Good A. In the production process, Producer A uses originating Material X and non-originating Material Y to produce Material Z. Material Z is a self-produced material that will be used to produce Good A.

    The rule set out in Schedule I for the heading under which Good A is classified specifies a change in tariff classification from any other heading. In this case, both Good A and the non-originating Material Y are of the same heading. However, the self-produced Material Z is of a heading different than that of Good A.

    For purposes of determining whether the non-originating materials that are used in the production of Good A undergo the applicable change in tariff classification, Producer A has the option to consider the self-produced Material Z as the material that must undergo a change in tariff classification. As Material Z is of a heading different than that of Good A, Material Z satisfies the applicable change in tariff classification and Good A would qualify as an originating good.

  • (13) Each of the following examples is an “Example” as referred to in subsection 2(4).

    • Example 1: subsection 5(1)

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, uses originating materials and non-originating materials in the production of copper anodes of heading 74.02. The rule set out in Schedule I for heading 74.02 specifies a change in tariff classification from any other chapter. There is no applicable regional value-content requirement for this heading. Therefore, in order for the copper anode to qualify as an originating good under the rule set out in Schedule I, Producer A may not use in the production of the copper anode any non-originating material of Chapter 74.

      All of the materials used in the production of the copper anode are originating materials, with the exception of a small amount of copper scrap of heading 74.04, that is in the same chapter as the copper anode. Under subsection 5(1), if the value of the non-originating copper scrap does not exceed seven per cent of the transaction value of the copper anode or the total cost of the copper anode, whichever is applicable, the copper anode would be considered an originating good.

    • Example 2: subsection 5(2)

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, uses originating materials and non-originating materials in the production of ceiling fans of subheading 8414.51. There are two alternative rules set out in Schedule I for subheading 8414.51, one of which specifies a change in tariff classification from any other heading. The other rule specifies both a change in tariff classification from the subheading under which parts of the ceiling fans are classified and a regional value-content requirement. Therefore, in order for the ceiling fan to qualify as an originating good under the first of the alternative rules, all of the materials that are classified under the subheading for parts of ceiling fans and used in the production of the completed ceiling fan must be originating materials.

      In this case, all of the non-originating materials used in the production of the ceiling fan satisfy the change in tariff classification set out in the rule that specifies a change in tariff classification from any other heading, with the exception of one non-originating material that is classified under the subheading for parts of ceiling fans. Under subsection 5(1), if the value of the non-originating material that does not satisfy the change in tariff classification specified in the first rule does not exceed seven per cent of the transaction value of the ceiling fan or the total cost of the ceiling fan, whichever is applicable, the ceiling fan would be considered an originating good. Therefore, under subsection 5(2), the ceiling fan would not be required to satisfy the alternative rule that specifies both a change in tariff classification and a regional value-content requirement.

    • Example 3: subsection 5(2)

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, uses originating materials and non-originating materials in the production of plastic bags of subheading 3923.29. The rule set out in Schedule I for subheading 3923.29 specifies both a change in tariff classification from any other heading, except from subheading 3920.20 or 3920.71, under which certain plastic materials are classified, and a regional value-content requirement. Therefore, with respect to that part of the rule that specifies a change in tariff classification, in order for the plastic bag to qualify as an originating good, any plastic materials that are classified under subheading 3920.20 or 3920.71 and that are used in the production of the plastic bag must be originating materials.

      In this case, all of the non-originating materials used in the production of the plastic bag satisfy the specified change in tariff classification, with the exception of a small amount of plastic materials classified under subheading 3920.71. Subsection 5(1) provides that the plastic bag can be considered an originating good if the value of the non-originating plastic materials that do not satisfy the specified change in tariff classification does not exceed seven per cent of the transaction value of the plastic bag or the total cost of the plastic bag, whichever is applicable. In this case, the value of those non-originating materials that do not satisfy the specified change in tariff classification does not exceed the seven per cent limit.

      However, the rule set out in Schedule I for subheading 3923.29 specifies both a change in tariff classification and a regional value-content requirement. Therefore, under paragraph 5(1)(c), in order to be considered an originating good, the plastic bag must also, except as otherwise provided in subsection 5(5), satisfy the regional value-content requirement specified in that rule. As provided in paragraph 5(1)(c), the value of the non-originating materials that do not satisfy the specified change in tariff classification, together with the value of all other non-originating materials used in the production of the plastic bag, will be taken into account in calculating the regional value content of the plastic bag.

    • Example 4: subsection 5(5)

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, primarily uses originating materials in the production of shoes of heading 64.05. The rule set out in Schedule I for heading 64.05 specifies both a change in tariff classification from any subheading other than subheadings 6401.10 through 6406.10 and a regional value-content requirement.

      With the exception of a small amount of materials of Chapter 39, all of the materials used in the production of the shoes are originating materials.

      Under subsection 5(5), if the value of all of the non-originating materials used in the production of the shoes does not exceed seven per cent of the transaction value of the shoes or the total cost of the shoes, whichever is applicable, the shoes are not required to satisfy the regional value-content requirement specified in the rule set out in Schedule I in order to be considered originating goods.

    • Example 5: subsection 5(5)

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, produces barbers’ chairs of subheading 9402.10. The rule set out in Schedule I for goods of heading 94.02 specifies a change in tariff classification from any other chapter. All of the materials used in the production of these chairs are originating materials, with the exception of a small quantity of non-originating materials that are classified as parts of barbers’ chairs. These parts undergo no change in tariff classification because subheading 9402.10 provides for both barbers’ chairs and their parts.

      Although Producer A’s barbers’ chairs do not qualify as originating goods under the rule set out in Schedule I, paragraph 4(4)(b) provides, among other things, that, where there is no change in tariff classification from the non-originating materials to the goods because the subheading under which the goods are classified provides for both the goods and their parts, the goods shall qualify as originating goods if they satisfy a specified regional value-content requirement.

      However, under subsection 5(5), if the value of the non-originating materials does not exceed seven per cent of the transaction value of the barbers’ chairs or the total cost of the barbers’ chairs, whichever is applicable, the barbers’ chairs will be considered originating goods and are not required to satisfy the regional value-content requirement set out in subparagraph 4(4)(b)(v).

    • Example 6: subsections 5(6) and (7)

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, produces women’s dresses of subheading 6204.41 from fine wool fabric of heading 51.12. This fine wool fabric, also produced by Producer A, is the component of the dress that determines its tariff classification under subheading 6204.41.

      The rule set out in Schedule I for subheading 6204.41, under which the dress is classified, specifies both a change in tariff classification from any other chapter, except from those headings and chapters under which certain yarns and fabrics, including combed wool yarn and wool fabric, are classified, and a requirement that the good be cut and sewn or otherwise assembled in the territory of one or more of the NAFTA countries.

      Therefore, with respect to that part of the rule that specifies a change in tariff classification, in order for the dress to qualify as an originating good, the combed wool yarn and the fine wool fabric made therefrom that are used by Producer A in the production of the dress must be originating materials.

      At one point Producer A uses a small quantity of non-originating combed wool yarn in the production of the fine wool fabric. Under subsection 5(6), if the total weight of the non-originating combed wool yarn does not exceed seven per cent of the total weight of all the yarn used in the production of the component of the dress that determines its tariff classification, that is, the wool fabric, the dress would be considered an originating good.

  • (7) If the exporter or producer of a good calculates the regional value content of the good on the basis of the transaction value method and the customs administration of a NAFTA country subsequently notifies that exporter or producer in writing, during the course of a verification of origin, that

    • (a) the transaction value of the good, as determined by the exporter or producer, is required to be adjusted under section 4 of Schedule II or is unacceptable under subsection 2(2) of Schedule III, there is no transaction value for the good under subsection 2(1) of Schedule III or the transaction value method may not be used because of the application of paragraph (6)(c), or

    • (b) the value of any material used in the production of the good, as determined by the exporter or producer, is required to be adjusted under section 5 of Schedule VIII or is unacceptable under subsection 2(3) of Schedule VIII, or there is no transaction value for the material under subsection 2(2) of Schedule VIII or the transaction value method may not be used to calculate the regional value content of the material because of the application of paragraph (6)(c),

    the exporter or producer may choose that the regional value content of the good be calculated on the basis of the net cost method, in which case the calculation must be made within 60 days after the producer receives the notification, or such longer period as that customs administration specifies.

  • (8) If the exporter or producer of a good chooses that the regional value content of the good be calculated on the basis of the net cost method and the customs administration of a NAFTA country subsequently notifies that exporter or producer in writing, during the course of a verification of origin, that the good does not satisfy the applicable regional value-content requirement, the exporter or producer of the good may not recalculate the regional value content on the basis of the transaction value method.

  • (9) Nothing in subsection (7) shall be construed as preventing any review and appeal under sections 57.1 through 70 of the Customs Act, of an adjustment to or a rejection of

    • (a) the transaction value of the good; or

    • (b) the value of any material used in the production of the good.

  • (10) For purposes of the transaction value method, where non-originating materials that are the same as one another in all respects, including physical characteristics, quality and reputation but excluding minor differences in appearance, are used in the production of a good, the value of those non-originating materials may, at the choice of the producer of the good, be determined in accordance with one of the methods set out in Schedule IX.

  • (11) For purposes of subsection (3), the net cost of a good may be calculated, at the choice of the producer of the good, by

    • (a) calculating the total cost incurred with respect to all goods produced by that producer, subtracting any excluded costs that are included in that total cost, and reasonably allocating, in accordance with Schedule VII, the remainder to the good;

    • (b) calculating the total cost incurred with respect to all goods produced by that producer, reasonably allocating, in accordance with Schedule VII, that total cost to the good, and subtracting any excluded costs that are included in the amount allocated to that good; or

    • (c) reasonably allocating, in accordance with Schedule VII, each cost that forms part of the total cost incurred with respect to the good so that the aggregate of those costs does not include any excluded costs.

  • (12) Total cost under subsection (11) consists of the costs referred to in subsection 2(6), and is calculated in accordance with that subsection.

  • (13) For purposes of calculating net cost under subsection (11),

    • (a) excluded costs shall be the excluded costs that are recorded on the books of the producer of the good;

    • (b) excluded costs that are included in the value of a material that is used in the production of the good shall not be subtracted from or otherwise excluded from the total cost; and

    • (c) excluded costs do not include any amount paid for research and development services performed in the territory of a NAFTA country.

  • (14) For purposes of calculating non-allowable interest costs, the determination of whether interest costs incurred by a producer are more than 700 basis points above the yield on debt obligations of comparable maturities issued by the federal government of the country in which the producer is located shall be made in accordance with Schedule XI.

  • (15) For purposes of the net cost method, the regional value content of the good, other than a good with respect to which an election to average may be made under subsection 11(1), (3) or (6), 12(1) or 13(4), may be calculated, where the producer elects to do so, by

    • (a) calculating the sum of the net costs incurred and the sum of the values of non-originating materials used by the producer of the good with respect to the good and identical goods or similar goods, or any combination thereof, produced in a single plant by the producer over

      • (i) a month,

      • (ii) any consecutive three month or six month period that falls within and is evenly divisible into the number of months of the producer’s fiscal year remaining at the beginning of that period, or

  • (16) The calculation made under subsection (15) shall apply with respect to all units of the good produced during the period chosen by the producer under paragraph (15)(a).

  • (17) An election made under subsection (15) may not be rescinded or modified with respect to the goods or the period with respect to which the election is made.

  • (18) Where a producer chooses a one, three or six month period under subsection (15) with respect to goods, the producer shall be considered to have chosen under that subsection a period or periods of the same duration for the remainder of the producer’s fiscal year with respect to those goods.

  • (19) Where the net cost method is required to be used or has been chosen and an election has been made under subsection (15), the regional value content of the good shall be calculated on the basis of the net cost method over the period chosen under that subsection and for the remainder of the producer’s fiscal year.

  • (20) Except as otherwise provided in subsections 11(10), 12(11) and 13(10), where the producer of a good has calculated the regional value content of the good under the net cost method on the basis of estimated costs, including standard costs, budgeted forecasts or other similar estimating procedures, before or during the period chosen under paragraph (15)(a), the producer shall conduct an analysis at the end of the producer’s fiscal year of the actual costs incurred over the period with respect to the production of the good and, if the good does not satisfy the regional value-content requirement on the basis of the actual costs during that period, immediately inform any person to whom the producer has provided a Certificate of Origin for the good, or a written statement that the good is an originating good, that the good is a non-originating good.

  • (21) For purposes of calculating the regional value content of a good, the producer of that good may choose to treat any material used in the production of that good as a non-originating material.

  • (22) Each of the following examples is an “Example” as referred to in subsection 2(4).

    • Example 1: example of point of direct shipment (with respect to adjusted to an F.O.B. Basis)

      A producer has only one factory, at which the producer manufactures finished office chairs. Because the factory is located close to transportation facilities, all units of the finished good are stored in a factory warehouse 200 metres from the end of the production line. Goods are shipped worldwide from this warehouse. The point of direct shipment is the warehouse.

    • Example 2: examples of point of direct shipment (with respect to adjusted to an F.O.B. Basis)

      A producer has six factories, all located within the territory of one of the NAFTA countries, at which the producer produces garden tools of various types. These tools are shipped worldwide, and orders usually consist of bulk orders of various types of tools. Because different tools are manufactured at different factories, the producer decided to consolidate storage and shipping facilities and ships all finished products to a large warehouse located near the seaport, from which all orders are shipped. The distance from the factories to the warehouse varies from 3 km to 130 km. The point of direct shipment for each of the goods is the warehouse.

    • Example 3: examples of point of direct shipment (with respect to adjusted to an F.O.B. Basis)

      A producer has only one factory, located near the centre of one of the NAFTA countries, at which the producer manufactures finished office chairs. The office chairs are shipped from that factory to three warehouses leased by the producer, one on the west coast, one near the factory and one on the east coast. The office chairs are shipped to buyers from these warehouses, the shipping location depending on the shipping distance from the buyer. Buyers closest to the west coast warehouse are normally supplied by the west coast warehouse, buyers closest to the east coast are normally supplied by the warehouse located on the east coast and buyers closest to the warehouse near the factory are normally supplied by that warehouse. In this case, the point of direct shipment is the location of the warehouse from which the office chairs are normally shipped to customers in the location in which the buyer is located.

    • Example 4: subsection 6(3), net cost method

      A producer located in NAFTA country A sells Good A that is subject to a regional value-content requirement to a buyer located in NAFTA country B. The producer of Good A chooses that the regional value content of that good be calculated using the net cost method. All applicable requirements of these Regulations, other than the regional value-content requirement, have been met. The applicable regional value-content requirement is 50 per cent.

      In order to calculate the regional value-content of Good A, the producer first calculates the net cost of Good A. Under paragraph 6(11)(a), the net cost is the total cost of Good A (the aggregate of the product costs, period costs and other costs) per unit, minus the excluded costs (the aggregate of the sales promotion, marketing and after-sales service costs, royalties, shipping and packing costs and non-allowable interest costs) per unit. The producer uses the following figures to calculate the net cost:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materialsblank line$  30.00
        • Value of non-originating materialsblank line40.00
        • Other product costsblank line20.00
      • Period costs:blank line10.00
      • Other costs:blank line0.00
      • Total cost of Good A, per unit:blank line$100.00


      • Excluded costs:
        • Sales promotion, marketing and after-sales service costsblank line$  5.00
        • Royaltiesblank line2.50
        • Shipping and packing costsblank line3.00
        • Non-allowable interest costsblank line1.50
      • Total excluded costs:blank line$12.00

      The net cost is the total cost of Good A, per unit, minus the excluded costs.

      • Total cost of Good A, per unit:blank lineblank line$100.00
      • Excluded costs:blank lineblank line- 12.00
      • Net cost of Good A, per unit:blank lineblank line$  88.00

      The value for net cost ($88) and the value of non-originating materials ($40) are needed in order to calculate the regional value content. The producer calculates the regional value content of Good A under the net cost method in the following manner:

      RVC=

      (NC - VNM) ÷ NC × 100

      =

      (88 - 40) ÷ 88 × 100

      =54.5%

      Therefore, under the net cost method, Good A qualifies as an originating good, with a regional value-content of 54.5 per cent.

    • Example 5: paragraph 6(6)(c), net cost method required for certain sales to related persons

      On January 15, 1994, a producer located in NAFTA country A sells 1,000 units of Good A to a related person, located in NAFTA country B. During the six month period beginning on July 1, 1993 and ending on December 31, 1993, the producer sold 90,000 units of identical goods and similar goods to related persons from various countries, including that buyer. The producer’s total sales of those identical goods and similar goods to all persons from all countries during that six month period were 100,000 units.

      The total quantity of identical goods and similar goods sold by the producer to related persons during that six month period was 90 per cent of the producer’s total sales of those identical goods and similar goods to all persons. Under paragraph 6(6)(c), the producer must use the net cost method to calculate the regional value content of Good A sold in January 1994, because the 85 per cent limit was exceeded.

    • Example 6: paragraph 6(11)(a)

      A producer in a NAFTA country produces Good A and Good B during the producer’s fiscal year.

      The producer uses the following figures, which are recorded on the producer’s books and represent all of the costs incurred with respect to both Good A and Good B, to calculate the net cost of those goods:

      • Product costs:

        Value of originating materialsblank line$2,000

        Value of non-originating materialsblank line1,000

        Other product costsblank line2,400

      • Period costs: (including $1,200 in excluded costs)blank line3,200
      • Other costs:blank line400
      • Total cost of Good A and Good B:blank line$9,000

      The net cost is the total cost of Good A and Good B, minus the excluded costs incurred with respect to those goods.

      • Total cost of Good A and Good B:blank line$9,000
      • Excluded costs:blank line- 1,200
      • Net cost of Good A and Good B:blank line$7,800

      The net cost must then be reasonably allocated, in accordance with Schedule VII, to Good A and Good B.

    • Example 7: paragraph 6(11)(b)

      A producer located in a NAFTA country produces Good A and Good B during the producer’s fiscal year. In order to calculate the regional value content of Good A and Good B, the producer uses the following figures that are recorded on the producer’s books and incurred with respect to those goods:

      • Product costs:

        Value of originating materialsblank line$2,000

        Value of non-originating materialsblank line1,000

        Other product costsblank line2,400

      • Period costs: (including $1,200 in excluded costs)blank line3,200
      • Other costs:blank line400
      • Total cost of Good A and Good B:blank line$9,000

      Under paragraph 6(11)(b), the total cost of Good A and Good B is then reasonably allocated, in accordance with Schedule VII, to those goods. The costs are allocated in the following manner:

      Allocated to Good AAllocated to Good B
      Total cost ($9,000 for both Good A and Good B)$5,220$3,780

      The excluded costs ($1,200) that are included in total cost allocated to Good A and Good B, in accordance with Schedule VII, are subtracted from that amount.

      Total Excluded costs:Excluded Cost Allocated to Good AExcluded Cost Allocated to Good B

        290  210
      Net cost (total cost minus excluded costs):$4,524$3,276

      The net cost of Good A is thus $4,524, and the net cost of Good B is $3,276.

    • Example 8: paragraph 6(11)(c)

      A producer located in a NAFTA country produces Good C and Good D. The following costs are recorded on the producer’s books for the months of January, February and March, and each cost that forms part of the total cost are reasonably allocated, in accordance with Schedule VII, to Good C and Good D.

      Total cost: Good C and Good D (in thousands of dollars)Allocated to Good C (in thousands of dollars)Allocated to Good D (in thousands of dollars)

    • Example 9: subsection 6(12)

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, produces Good A that is subject to a regional value-content requirement. The producer chooses that the regional value content of that good be calculated using the net cost method. Producer A buys Material X from Producer B, located in a NAFTA country. Material X is a non-originating material and is used in the production of Good A. Producer A provides Producer B, at no charge, with tools to be used in the production of Material X. The cost of the tools that is recorded on the books of Producer A has been expensed in the current year. Pursuant to subparagraph 5(1)(b)(ii) of Schedule VIII, the value of the tools is included in the value of Material X. Therefore, the cost of the tools that is recorded on the books of Producer A and that has been expensed in the current year cannot be included as a separate cost in the net cost of Good A because it has already been included in the value of Material X.

    • Example 10: subsection 6(12)

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, produces Good A that is subject to a regional value-content requirement. The producer chooses that the regional value-content of that good be calculated using the net cost method and averages the calculation over the producer’s fiscal year under subsection 6(15). Producer A determines that during that fiscal year Producer A incurred a gain on foreign currency conversion of $10,000 and a loss on foreign currency conversion of $8,000, resulting in a net gain of $2,000. Producer A also determines that $7,000 of the gain on foreign currency conversion and $6,000 of the loss on foreign currency conversion is related to the purchase of non-originating materials used in the production of Good A, and $3,000 of the gain on foreign currency conversion and $2,000 of the loss on foreign currency conversion is not related to the production of Good A. The producer determines that the total cost of Good A is $45,000 before deducting the $1,000 net gain on foreign currency conversion related to the production of Good A. The total cost of Good A is therefore $44,000. That $1,000 net gain is not included in the value of non-originating materials under subsection 7(1).

    • Example 11: subsection 6(12)

      Given the same facts as in example 10, except that Producer A determines that $6,000 of the gain on foreign currency conversion and $7,000 of the loss on foreign currency conversion is related to the purchase of non-originating materials used in the production of Good A. The total cost of Good A is $45,000, which includes the $1,000 net loss on foreign currency conversion related to the production of Good A. That $1,000 net loss is not included in the value of non-originating materials under subsection 7(1).

    • (a) the accessories, spare parts or tools are not invoiced separately from the good; and

    • (b) the quantities and value of the accessories, spare parts or tools are customary for the good, within the industry that produces the good.

  • (18) Where a good is subject to a regional value-content requirement, the value of accessories, spare parts and tools that are delivered with that good and form part of the good’s standard accessories, spare parts or tools shall be taken into account as originating materials or non-originating materials, as the case may be, in calculating the regional value content of the good.

  • (19) For purposes of subsection (18), where accessories, spare parts and tools are self-produced materials, the producer may choose to designate those materials as intermediate materials under subsection (4).

  • (20) Each of the following examples is an “Example” as referred to in subsection 2(4).

    • Example 1: subsection 7(2), Customs Value not Determined in a Manner Consistent with Schedule VIII

      Producer A, located in NAFTA country A, imports material A into NAFTA country A. Producer A purchased material A from a middleman located in country B. The middleman purchased the material from a manufacturer located in country B. Under the laws in NAFTA country A that implement the Agreement on Implementation of Article VII of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, the customs value of material A was based on the price actually paid or payable by the middleman to the manufacturer. Producer A uses material A to produce Good C, and exports Good C to NAFTA country D. Good C is subject to a regional value-content requirement.

      Under subsection 4(1) of Schedule VIII, the price actually paid or payable is the total payment made or to be made by the producer to or for the benefit of the seller of the material. Section 1 of that Schedule defines producer and seller for purposes of the Schedule. A producer is the person who uses the material in the production of a good that is subject to a regional value-content requirement. A seller is the person who sells the material being valued to the producer.

      The customs value of material A was not determined in a manner consistent with Schedule VIII because it was based on the price actually paid or payable by the middleman to the manufacturer, rather than on the price actually paid or payable by Producer A to the middleman. Thus, subsection 7(2) applies and material A is valued in accordance with Schedule VIII.

    • Example 2: subsection 7(5), Value of Intermediate Materials

      A producer located in a NAFTA country produces Good B, which is subject to a regional value-content requirement under paragraph 4(2)(b). The producer also produces Material A, which is used in the production of Good B. Both originating materials and non-originating materials are used in the production of Material A. Material A is subject to a change in tariff classification requirement under paragraph 4(2)(a). The costs to produce Material A are the following:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materialsblank line$  1.00
        • Value of non-originating materialsblank line7.50
        • Other product costsblank line1.50
      • Period costs (including $0.30 in royalties):blank line0.50
      • Other costs:blank line0.10
      • Total cost of Material A:blank line$10.60

      The producer designates Material A as an intermediate material and determines that, because all of the non-originating materials that are used in the production of Material A undergo an applicable change in tariff classification set out in Schedule I, Material A would, under paragraph 4(2)(a) qualify as an originating material. The cost of the non-originating materials used in the production of Material A is therefore not included in the value of non-originating materials that are used in the production of Good B for the purpose of determining the regional value content of Good B. Because Material A has been designated as an intermediate material, the total cost of Material A, which is $10.60, is treated as the cost of originating materials for the purpose of calculating the regional value content of Good B. The total cost of Good B is determined in accordance with the following figures:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materials
          • - intermediate materialsblank line$10.60
          • - other materialsblank line3.00
        • Value of non-originating materialsblank line5.50
      • Other product costsblank line6.50
      • Period costs:blank line2.50
      • Other costs:blank line0.10
      • Total cost of Good B:blank line$28.20
    • Example 3: subsection 7(5), Effects of the Designation of Self-produced Materials on Net Cost

      The ability to designate intermediate materials helps to put the vertically integrated producer who is self-producing materials that are used in the production of a good on par with a producer who is purchasing materials and valuing those materials in accordance with subsection 7(1). The following situations demonstrate how this is achieved:

      Situation 1

      A producer located in a NAFTA country produces Good B, which is subject to a regional value-content requirement of 50 per cent under the net cost method. Good B satisfies all other applicable requirements of these Regulations. The producer purchases Material A, which is used in the production of Good B, from a supplier located in a NAFTA country. The value of Material A determined in accordance with subsection 7(1) is $11.00. Material A is an originating material. All other materials used in the production of Good B are non-originating materials. The net cost of Good B is determined as follows:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materials (Material A)blank line$11.00
        • Value of non-originating materialsblank line5.50
        • Other product costsblank line6.50
      • Period costs: (including $0.20 in excluded costs)blank line0.50
      • Other costs:blank line0.10
      • Total cost of Good B:blank line$23.60
      • Excluded costs: (included in period costs)blank line0.20
      • Net cost of Good B:blank line$23.40

      The regional value content of Good B is calculated as follows:

      RVC=

      (NC - VNM) ÷ NC × 100

      =

      ($23.40 - $5.50) ÷ $23.40 × 100

      =76.5%

      The regional value content of Good B is 76.5 per cent, and Good B, therefore, qualifies as an originating good.

      Situation 2

      A producer located in a NAFTA country produces Good B, which is subject to a regional value-content requirement of 50 per cent under the net cost method. Good B satisfies all other applicable requirements of these Regulations. The producer self-produces Material A which is used in the production of Good B. The costs to produce Material A are the following:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materialsblank line$  1.00
        • Value of non-originating materialsblank line7.50
        • Other product costsblank line1.50
      • Period costs: (including $0.20 in excluded costs)blank line0.50
      • Other costs:blank line0.10
      • Total cost of Material A:blank line$10.60

      Additional costs to produce Good B are the following:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materialsblank line$  0.00
        • Value of non-originating materialsblank line5.50
        • Other product costsblank line6.50
      • Period costs: (including $0.20 in excluded costs)blank line0.50
      • Other costs:blank line0.10
      • Total additional costs:blank line$12.60

      The producer does not designate Material A as an intermediate material under subsection 7(4). The net cost of Good B is calculated as follows:

      Costs of Material A (not designated as an intermediate material)Additional Costs to Produce Good BTotal
      Product costs:
      Value of originating materials$ 1.00$ 0.00$ 1.00
      Value of non-originating materials  7.50  5.5013.00
      Other product costs  1.50  6.508.00
      Period costs (including $0.20 in excluded costs):  0.50  0.501.00
      Other costs:   0.10   0.10   0.20
      Total cost of Good B:$10.60$12.60$23.20
      Excluded costs (in period costs)  0.20  0.20   0.40
      Net cost of Good B (total cost minus excluded costs):$22.80

      The regional value content of Good B is calculated as follows:

      RVC=

      (NC - VNM) ÷ NC × 100

      =

      ($22.80 - $13.00) ÷ $22.80 × 100

      =42.9%

      The regional value content of Good B is 42.9 per cent, and Good B, therefore, does not qualify as an originating good.

      Situation 3

      A producer located in a NAFTA country produces Good B, which is subject to a regional value-content requirement of 50 per cent under the net cost method. Good B satisfies all other applicable requirements of these Regulations. The producer self-produces Material A, which is used in the production of Good B. The costs to produce Material A are the following:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materialsblank line$ 1.00
        • Value of non-originating materialsblank line7.50
        • Other product costsblank line1.50
      • Period costs: (including $0.20 in excluded costs)blank line0.50
      • Other costs:blank line0.10
      • Total cost of Material A:blank line$10.60

      Additional costs to produce Good B are the following:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materialsblank line$ 0.00
        • Value of non-originating materialsblank line5.50
        • Other product costsblank line6.50
      • Period costs: (including $0.20 in excluded costs)blank line0.50
      • Other costs:blank line0.10
      • Total additional costs:blank line$12.60

      The producer designates Material A as an intermediate material under subsection 7(4). Material A qualifies as an originating material under paragraph 4(2)(a). Therefore, the value of non-originating materials used in the production of Material A is not included in the value of non-originating materials for the purposes of calculating the regional value content of Good B. The net cost of Good B is calculated as follows:

      Costs of Material A (designated as an intermediate materialAdditional Costs to Produce Good BTotal
      Product costs:
      Value of originating materials$10.60$  0.00$10.60
      Value of non-originating materials   5.505.50
      Other product costs   6.506.50
      Period costs (including $0.20 in excluded costs):   0.500.50
      Other costs:   0.10   0.10
      Total cost of Good B:$10.60$12.60$23.20
      Excluded costs (in period costs)   0.20   0.20
      Net cost of Good B (total cost minus excluded costs):$23.00

      The regional value content of Good B is calculated as follows:

      RVC=

      (NC - VNM) ÷ NC × 100

      =

      ($23.00 - $5.50) ÷ $23.00 × 100

      =76.1%

      The regional value content of Good B is 76.1 per cent, and Good B, therefore, qualifies as an originating good.

    • Example 4: Originating Materials Acquired from a Producer Who Produced Them Using Intermediate Materials

      Producer A, located in NAFTA country A, produces switches. In order for the switches to qualify as originating goods, Producer A designates subassemblies of the switches as intermediate materials. The subassemblies are subject to a regional value-content requirement. They satisfy that requirement, and qualify as originating materials. The switches are also subject to a regional value-content requirement, and, with the subassemblies designated as intermediate materials, are determined to have a regional value content of 65 per cent.

      Producer A sells the switches to Producer B, located in NAFTA country B, who uses them to produce switch assemblies that are used in the production of Good B. The switch assemblies are subject to a regional value-content requirement. Producers A and B are not accumulating their production within the meaning of section 14. Producer B is therefore able, under subsection 7(4), to designate the switch assemblies as intermediate materials.

      If Producers A and B were accumulating their production within the meaning of section 14, Producer B would be unable to designate the switch assemblies as intermediate materials, because the production of both producers would be considered to be the production of one producer.

    • Example 5: Single Producer and Successive Designations of Materials Subject to a Regional Value-Content Requirement as Intermediate Materials

      Producer A, located in NAFTA country, produces Material X and uses Material X in the production of Good B. Material X qualifies as an originating material because it satisfies the applicable regional value-content requirement. Producer A designates Material X as an intermediate material.

      Producer A uses Material X in the production of Material Y, which is also used in the production of Good B. Material Y is also subject to a regional value-content requirement. Under the proviso set out in subsection 7(4), Producer A cannot designate Material Y as an intermediate material, even if Material Y satisfies the applicable regional value-content requirement, because Material X was already designated by Producer A as an intermediate material.

    • Example 6: Single Producer and Multiple Designations of Materials as Intermediate Materials

      Producer X, who is located in NAFTA country X, uses non-originating materials in the production of self-produced materials A, B and C. None of the self-produced materials are used in the production of any of the other self-produced materials.

      Producer X uses the self-produced materials in the production of Good O, which is exported to NAFTA country Y. Materials A, B and C qualify as originating materials because they satisfy the applicable regional value-content requirements.

      Because none of the self-produced materials are used in the production of any of the other self-produced materials, then even though each self-produced material is subject to a regional value-content requirement, Producer X may, under subsection 7(4), designate all of the self-produced materials as intermediate materials. The proviso set out in subsection 7(4) only applies where self-produced materials are used in the production of other self-produced materials and both are subject to a regional value-content requirement.

    • Example 7: subsection 7(17)

      The following are examples of accessories, spare parts or tools that are delivered with a good and form part of the good’s standard accessories, spare parts or tools:

      • (a) consumables that must be replaced at regular intervals, such as dust collectors for an air-conditioning system,

      • (b) a carrying case for equipment,

      • (c) a dust cover for a machine,

      • (d) an operational manual for a vehicle,

      • (e) brackets to attach equipment to a wall,

      • (f) a bicycle tool kit or a car jack,

      • (g) a set of wrenches to change the bit on a chuck,

      • (h) a brush or other tool to clean out a machine, and

      • (i) electrical cords and power bars for use with electronic goods.

    • Example 8: Value of Indirect Materials that are Assists

      Producer A, located in a NAFTA country, produces Good A that is subject to a regional value-content requirement. The producer chooses that the regional value content of that good be calculated using the net cost method. Producer A buys Material X from Producer B, located in a NAFTA country, and uses it in the production of Good A. Producer A provides to Producer B, at no charge, tools to be used in the production of Material X. The tools have a value of $100 which is expensed in the current year by Producer A.

      Material X is subject to a regional value-content requirement which Producer B chooses to calculate using the net cost method. For purposes of determining the value of non-originating materials in order to calculate the regional value content of Material X, the tools are considered to be an originating material because they are an indirect material. However, pursuant to subsection 7(11) they have a value of nil because the cost of the tools with respect to Material X is not recorded on the books of Producer B.

      It is determined that Material X is a non-originating material. The cost of the tools that is recorded on the books of producer A is expensed in the current year. Pursuant to section 5 of Schedule VIII, the value of the tools (see subparagraph 5(1)(b)(ii) of Schedule VIII) must be included in the value of Material X by Producer A when calculating the regional value content of Good A. The cost of the tools, although recorded on the books of producer A, cannot be included as a separate cost in the net cost of Good A because it is already included in the value of Material X. The entire cost of Material X, which includes the cost of the tools, is included in the value of non-originating materials for purposes of the regional value content of Good A.

  • (10) Each of the following examples is an “Example” as referred to in subsection 2(4).

    Example 1

    Nuts and bolts of heading 73.18 are imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries and are used in the territory of a NAFTA country in the production of a light-duty automotive good referred to in subsection 9(1). Heading 73.18 is not listed in Schedule IV so the nuts and bolts are not traced materials.

    Because the nuts and bolts are not traced materials the value, under subsection 9(1), of the nuts and bolts is not included in the value of non-originating materials used in the light-duty automotive good even though the nuts and bolts are imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries.

    The value, under paragraph 9(9)(b), of the nuts and bolts is included in the net cost of the light-duty automotive good for the purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), regional value content of the motor vehicle.

    Example 2

    A rear view mirror of subheading 7009.10 is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries and is used in the territory of a NAFTA country as original equipment in the production of a light-duty vehicle.

    Subheading 7009.10 is listed in Schedule IV. The rear view mirror is a traced material. For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), regional value content of the light-duty vehicle, the value of the mirror is included in the value of non-originating materials in accordance with subsections 9(2) through (9).

    Example 3

    Glass of heading 70.05 is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries and is used in the territory of NAFTA country A in the production of a rear view mirror. The rear view mirror is a non-originating good because it fails to satisfy the applicable change in tariff classification.

    That rear view mirror is exported to NAFTA country B where it is used as original equipment in the production of a light-duty vehicle. Even though the rear view mirror is a non-originating material and is of a tariff item listed in Schedule IV, it is not a traced material because it was not imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries.

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of a light-duty vehicle in which the rear view mirror is incorporated, the value of the rear view mirror, under subsection 9(1), is not included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the light-duty vehicle.

    Even though the glass of heading 70.05 that was used in the production of the rear view mirror and incorporated into the light-duty vehicle was imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, the glass is not a traced material because heading 70.05 is not listed in Schedule IV. For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the light-duty vehicle that incorporates the glass, the value of the glass is not included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the light-duty vehicle. The value of the rear view mirror would be included in the net cost of the light-duty vehicle, but the value of the imported glass would not be separately included in the value of non-originating materials of the light-duty vehicle.

    Example 4

    An electric motor of subheading 8501.10 is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries and is used in the territory of a NAFTA country in the production of a seat frame of subheading 9401.90. The seat frame, with the electric motor attached, is sold to a producer of seats of subheading 9401.20. The seat producer sells the seat to a producer of light-duty vehicles. The seat is to be used as original equipment in the production of that light-duty vehicle.

    Subheadings 8501.10 and 9401.20 are listed in Schedule IV; subheading 9401.90 is not. The electric motor is a traced material; the seat is not a traced material because it was not imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries.

    The seat is a light-duty automotive good referred to in subsection 9(1). For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the seat, the value of traced materials incorporated into it is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the seat. The value of the electric motor is included in that value. (However, the value of the motor would not be included separately in the net cost of the seat because the value of the motor is included as part of the cost of the seat frame.)

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the light-duty vehicle, the value of the electric motor is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the light-duty vehicle, even if the seat is an originating material.

    Example 5

    Cast blocks, cast heads and connecting rod assemblies of heading 84.09 are imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries by an engine producer, who has title to them at the time of importation, and are used by the producer in the territory of NAFTA country A in the production of an engine of heading 84.07. After the regional value content of the engine is calculated, the engine is an originating good. It is not a traced material because it was not imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries. The engine is exported to NAFTA country B, to be used as original equipment by a producer of light-duty vehicles.

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the light-duty vehicle that incorporates the engine, because heading 84.09 is listed in Schedule IV and because the cast blocks, cast heads and connecting rod assemblies were imported into the territory of a NAFTA country and are incorporated into the light-duty vehicle, the value of those materials, which are traced materials, is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the light-duty vehicle, even though the engine is an originating material.

    The producer of the light-duty vehicle did not import the traced materials. However, because that producer has a statement referred to in paragraph 9(2)(c) and that statement states the value of non-originating materials of the traced materials in accordance with subsection 12(2), the producer of the light-duty vehicle may, in accordance with subsection 9(8), use that value as the value of non-originating materials of the light-duty vehicle with respect to that engine.

    Example 6

    Aluminum ingots of subheading 7601.10 and piston assemblies of heading 84.09 are imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries by an engine producer and are used by that producer in the territory of NAFTA country A in the production of an engine of heading 84.07. The aluminum ingots are used by the producer to produce an engine block; the piston assembly is then incorporated into the engine block and the producer designates, in accordance with subsection 7(4), a short block of heading 84.09 as an intermediate material. The intermediate material qualifies as an originating material. The engine that incorporates the short block is exported to NAFTA country B and used as original equipment in the production of a light-duty vehicle. The piston assemblies of heading 84.09 are traced materials; neither the engine nor the short block are traced materials because they were not imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries.

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the engine, the value of the piston assemblies is included, under subparagraph 9(9)(a)(ii), in the value of non-originating materials, even though the intermediate material is an originating material. However, the value of the aluminum ingots is not included in the value of non-originating materials because subheading 7601.10 is not listed in Schedule IV. The value of the aluminum ingots does not need to be included separately in the net cost of the engine because that value is included in the value of the intermediate material, and the total cost of the intermediate material is included in the net cost of the engine.

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the light-duty vehicle that incorporates the engine (and the piston assemblies), the value of the piston assemblies incorporated into that light-duty vehicle is included in the value of non-originating materials of the light-duty vehicle.

    Example 7

    An engine of heading 84.07 is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries. The producer of the engine, located in the country from which the engine is imported, used in the production of the engine a piston assembly of heading 84.09 that was produced in a NAFTA country and is an originating good. The engine is used in the territory of a NAFTA country as original equipment in the production of a light-duty vehicle. The engine is a traced material.

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of a light-duty vehicle that incorporates that engine, the value of the engine is included in the value of non-originating materials of that light-duty vehicle. The value of the piston assembly, which was, before its exportation to outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, an originating good, shall not be deducted from the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the light-duty vehicle. Under section 16 (transshipment), the piston assembly is no longer considered to be an originating good because it was used in the production of a good outside the territories of the NAFTA countries.

    Example 8

    A wholesaler, located in City A in the territory of a NAFTA country, imports from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries rubber hoses of heading 40.09, which is listed in Schedule IV. The wholesaler takes title to the goods at the wholesaler’s place of business in City A. The customs value of the imported goods is $500. All freight, taxes and duties associated with the transportation of the good to the wholesaler’s place of business total $100; the cost of the freight, included in that $100, from the place where it was received in the territory of a NAFTA country to the location of the wholesaler’s place of business in City A is $25. The wholesaler sells the rubber hoses for $650 to a producer of light-duty vehicles who uses the goods in the territory of a NAFTA country as original equipment in the production of a light-duty vehicle. The light-duty vehicle producer pays $50 to have the goods shipped from the location of the wholesaler’s place of business in City A to the location at which the light-duty vehicle is produced.

    The rubber hoses are traced materials and they are incorporated into a light-duty automotive good. For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the light-duty vehicle,

    • (1) if the wholesaler takes title to the goods before the first place at which they were received in the territory of a NAFTA country, then the value of non-originating materials, where the light-duty vehicle producer has a statement referred to in paragraph 9(2)(c), would not include the cost of freight from the place where they were received in the territory of a NAFTA country to the location of the wholesaler’s place of business: in this situation, the value of non-originating materials would be $575;

    • (2) if the producer has a statement referred to in paragraph 9(2)(d) that states the customs value of the traced material and, where not included in that customs value, the cost of taxes, duties, fees and transporting the goods to the place where title is taken, the light-duty vehicle producer may use those values as the value of non-originating materials with respect to the goods: in this situation, the value of non-originating materials would be $600; or

    • (3) if the wholesaler is unwilling to provide the light-duty vehicle producer with such a statement, the value of non-originating materials with respect to the traced materials will be the value of the materials with respect to the transaction in which the producer acquired them, as provided for in paragraph 9(2)(i), in this instance $650; the costs of transporting the goods from the location of the wholesaler’s place of business to the location of the producer will be included in the net cost of the goods, but not in the value of non-originating materials.

    Example 9

    A wholesaler, located in City A in the territory of a NAFTA country, imports from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries rubber hose of heading 40.09, which is listed in Schedule IV. The wholesaler sells the good to a producer located in the territory of the NAFTA country who uses the hose to produce a power steering hose assembly, also of heading 40.09. The power steering hose assembly is then sold to a producer of light-duty vehicles who uses that good in the production of a light-duty vehicle. The rubber hose is a traced material; the power steering hose assembly is not a traced material because it was not imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries.

    The wholesaler who imported the rubber hose from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries has title to it at the time of importation. The customs value of the good is $3, including freight and insurance and all other costs incurred in transporting the good to the first place at which it was received in the territory of the NAFTA country. Duties and fees and all other costs referred to in subsection 9(4), paid by the wholesaler with respect to the good, total an additional $1. The wholesaler sells the good to the producer of the power steering hose assemblies for $5, not including freight to the location of that producer. The power steering hose producer pays $2 to have the good delivered to the location of production. The value of the power steering hose assembly sold to the light-duty vehicle producer is $10, including freight for delivery of the good to the location of the light-duty vehicle producer.

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the light-duty vehicle:

    • (1) if the motor vehicle producer has a statement referred to in paragraph 9(2)(c) from the producer of the power steering hose assembly that states the customs value of the imported rubber hose incorporated in the power steering hose assembly, and the value of the duties, fees and other costs referred to in subsection 9(4), the producer may use those values as the value of non-originating materials with respect to that traced good: in this situation, that value would be the customs value of $3 and the cost of duties and fees of $1, provided that the wholesaler has provided the producer of the power steering hose assembly with the information regarding the customs value of the imported good and the other costs;

    • (2) if the light-duty vehicle producer has a statement from the producer of the power steering hose assembly that states the value of the imported hose, with respect to the transaction in which the power steering hose assembly producer acquires the imported hose from the wholesaler, the light-duty vehicle producer may include that value as the value of non-originating materials, in accordance with paragraph 9(2)(e): in this situation, that value is $5; and the $2 cost of transporting the good from the location of the wholesaler to the location of the producer, because that cost is separately identified, would not be included in the value of non-originating materials of the light-duty vehicle;

    • (3) if the light-duty vehicle producer has a statement referred to in paragraph 9(2)(f) signed by the producer of the power steering hose assembly, the light-duty vehicle producer may use the formula set out in paragraph 9(2)(f) to calculate the value of non-originating materials with respect to that acquired material: in this situation, assuming the regional value content is 55 per cent, the value of non-originating materials would be $4.50; and because the cost of transportation from the location of the producer of the power steering hose assembly to the location of the light-duty vehicle producer is included in the purchase price and not separately identified, it may not be deducted from the purchase price, because the formula referred to in paragraph 9(2)(f) does not allow for the deduction of transportation costs that would otherwise not be non-originating;

    • (4) if the light-duty vehicle producer has a statement referred to in paragraph 9(2)(g) signed by the producer of the power steering hose assembly, the light-duty vehicle producer may use the formula set out in paragraph 9(2)(g) to calculate the value of non-originating materials with respect to that acquired material: in this situation, assuming the regional value-content requirement is 50 per cent, the value of non-originating materials would be $5; and because the cost of transportation from the location of the producer of the power steering hose assembly to the location of the light-duty vehicle producer is included in the purchase price and not separately identified, it may not be deducted from the purchase price, because the formula referred to in paragraph 9(2)(g) does not allow for the deduction of transportation costs that would otherwise not be non-originating; or

    • (5) if the light-duty vehicle producer does not have a statement referred to in any of paragraphs 9(2)(c) through (h) from the producer of the power steering hose assembly, the light-duty vehicle producer includes in the value of non-originating materials of the vehicles the value, determined in accordance with paragraph 9(2)(i), of the power steering hose assembly: in this situation, that amount would be $10, the cost to the producer of acquiring that material.

    Example 10

    A producer of light-duty vehicles located in City C in the territory of a NAFTA country imports from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries rubber hose of heading 40.09, which is listed in Schedule IV, and uses that good as original equipment in the production of a light-duty vehicle.

    The rubber hose arrives at City A in the NAFTA country, but the producer of the light-duty vehicle does not have title to the good; it is transported under bond to City B, and on its arrival in City B, the producer of the light-duty vehicle takes title to it and the good is received in the territory of a NAFTA country. The good is then transported to the location of the light-duty vehicle producer in City C.

    The customs value of the imported good is $4, the transportation and other costs referred to in subparagraph 9(2)(b)(ii) to City A are $3 and to City B are $2, and the cost of duties, taxes and other fees referred to in subsection 9(4) is $1. The cost of transporting the good from City B to the location of the producer in City C is $1. The rubber hose is traced material.

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the light-duty vehicle, the value, under paragraph 9(2)(b), of non-originating materials of that vehicle is the customs value of the traced material and, where not included in that value, the cost of taxes, duties, fees and the cost of transporting the traced material to the place where title is taken. In this situation, the value of non-originating materials would be the customs value of the traced material, $4, the cost of duties, taxes and other fees, $1, the cost of transporting the material to City A, $3, and the cost of transporting that material from City A to City B, $2, for a total of $10. The $1 cost of transporting the good from City B to the location of the producer in City C would not be included in the value of non-originating materials of the light-duty vehicle because a person of a NAFTA country has taken title to the traced material.

    Example 11

    A radiator of subheading 8708.91 is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries by a producer of light-duty vehicles and is used in the territory of a NAFTA country as original equipment in the production of a light-duty vehicle.

    The radiator is transported by ship from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries and arrives in the territory of the NAFTA country at City A. The radiator is not, however, unloaded at City A and although the radiator is physically present in the territory of the NAFTA country, it has not been received in the territory of a NAFTA country.

    The ship sails in territorial waters from City A to City B and the radiator is unloaded there. The light-duty vehicle producer files, from City C in the same country, the entry for the radiator; the radiator enters the territory of the NAFTA country at City B.

    Subheading 8708.91 is listed in Schedule IV. The radiator is a traced material.

    For purposes of calculating, under subsection 9(1), the regional value content of the light-duty vehicle, the value of the radiator is included in the value of non-originating materials of the light-duty vehicle. The costs of any freight, insurance, packing and other costs incurred in transporting the radiator to City B are included in the value of non-originating materials of the light-duty vehicle, including the cost of transporting the radiator from City A to City B. The costs of any freight, insurance, packing and other costs that were incurred in transporting the radiator from City B to the location of the producer are not included in the value of non-originating materials of the light-duty vehicle.

    Example 12

    Producer X, located in NAFTA country A, produces a car seat of subheading 9401.20 that is used in the production of a light-duty vehicle. The only non-originating material used in the production of the car seat is an electric motor of subheading 8501.20 that was imported by Producer X from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries. The electric motor is a material of a tariff provision listed in Schedule IV and thus is a traced material.

    Producer X sells the car seat as original equipment to Producer Y, a light-duty vehicle producer, located in NAFTA country B. The car seat is an originating good because the non-originating material in the car seat (the electric motor) undergoes the applicable change in tariff classification set out in a rule that specifies only a change in tariff classification. Consequently, Producer X does not elect to calculate the regional value content of the car seat in accordance with subsection 12(1).

    For purposes of determining, under subsection 9(1), the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the light-duty vehicle that incorporates the car seat, the value of the electric motor is included even though the car seat qualifies as an originating material.

    Producer X provides Producer Y with a statement described in paragraph 9(2)(c), with the value of non-originating material used in the production of the car seat determined in accordance with subsection 12(3), as is permitted by subsection 9(8). Producer Y uses that value as the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the light-duty vehicle with respect to the car seat.

    Example 13

    This example has the same facts as in Example 12, except that the car seat does not qualify as an originating good under the rule that specifies only a change in tariff classification. Instead, it qualifies as an originating good under a rule that specifies a regional value-content requirement and a change in tariff classification. For purposes of that rule, Producer X elected to calculate the regional value content of the car seat in accordance with subsection 12(1) over a period set out in paragraph 12(5)(a) and using a category set out in paragraph 12(4)(a).

    For purposes of the statement described in paragraph 9(2)(c), Producer X determined, as is permitted under subsection 9(8), the value of non-originating material used in the production of the car seat in accordance with subsection 12(3) over a period set out in paragraph 12(5)(a) and using a category set out in paragraph 12(4)(e).

  • (10) Each of the following examples is an “Example” as referred to in subsection 2(4).

    • Example 1

      A listed material is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries

      A cast head, produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is imported into the territory of a NAFTA country and used in that country in the production of an engine that will be used as original equipment in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. No other non-originating materials are used in the production of the engine. The cast head is a listed material; the engine is an automotive component.

      Use of the listed material in an automotive component

      For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the engine, the value of listed materials imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the engine. Because the cast head was produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, its value, under paragraph 10(1)(c), is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the engine.

      Use of an originating automotive component incorporating the listed material

      The engine is an originating material acquired by the producer of the heavy-duty vehicle. For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle that incorporates that engine (and incorporates the cast head), the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle is determined under paragraph 10(1)(d) with respect to that engine. The producer may choose to include in the value of non-originating materials of the heavy-duty vehicle

      • (a) the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(i), of the non-originating materials that are incorporated into the engine, which is the value, determined under paragraphs 10(1)(a) through (c) and subparagraph (e)(ii), of the non-originating materials;

      • (b) the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(ii), which is an amount equal to the amount determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iv) multiplied by the remainder of one minus the regional value content, expressed as a decimal, of the engine;

      • (c) the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iii), which is an amount equal to the amount determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iv) multiplied by the remainder of one minus the regional value-content requirement, expressed as a decimal, for the engine; or

      • (d) the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iv), of the engine.

      The heavy-duty vehicle producer may only choose the first option if that producer has a statement, referred to in subparagraph 10(1)(d)(i), from the person from whom the engine was acquired. In this situation, the value, determined under paragraph 10(1)(c), of the cast head, is included in the value of non-originating materials of the heavy-duty vehicle, with respect to the engine that is used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

      The heavy-duty vehicle producer may only choose the second option if that producer has a statement, referred to in subparagraph 10(1)(d)(ii), from the person from whom the engine was acquired. In this situation, because of the application of the equation, the value of the cast head will be included in the amount determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(ii) and is, consequently, included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

      The heavy-duty vehicle producer may only choose the third option if that producer has a statement, referred to in subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iii), from the person from whom the engine was acquired. In this situation, because of the application of the equation, the value of the cast head will be included in the amount determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iii) and is, consequently, included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

      Use of a non-originating automotive component incorporating the listed material

      The engine is a non-originating material acquired by the producer of the heavy-duty vehicle. For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle that incorporates that engine (and incorporates the cast head), the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle is determined under paragraph 10(1)(e) with respect to that engine. The producer of the heavy-duty vehicle may choose to include in the value of non-originating materials either

      • (a) the value, as determined under subparagraph 10(1)(e)(i), of the non-originating materials that are incorporated into the engine, which is the value of the non-originating materials as determined under paragraphs 10(1)(a) through (d) and (f), or

      • (b) the value of the engine, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(e)(ii).

      The heavy-duty vehicle producer may only choose the first option if that producer has a statement, referred to in subparagraph 10(1)(e)(i), from the person from whom the engine was acquired. In this situation, the value of the cast head, as determined under paragraph 10(1)(c), is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle, with respect to the engine that is used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

    • Example 2

      A material is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries

      A rocker arm assembly, produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is imported into the territory of a NAFTA country and used in that country in the production of an engine that will be used as original equipment in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. No other non-originating materials are used in the production of the engine. The rocker arm assembly is neither a listed material nor a sub-component; the engine is an automotive component.

      Use of the material in an automotive component

      For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the engine, the value of non-originating materials that are not listed materials is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the engine. Because the rocker arm assembly was produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, it is a non-originating material and its value, under paragraph 10(1)(f), is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the engine.

      Use of an originating automotive component incorporating the material

      The engine is an originating material acquired by the producer of the heavy-duty vehicle. For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle that incorporates that engine (and incorporates the rocker arm assembly), the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle is determined under paragraph 10(1)(d) with respect to that engine. The producer may choose to include in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle

      • (a) the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(i), of the non-originating materials that are incorporated into the engine, which is the value, determined under paragraphs 10(1)(a) through (c) and subparagraph (e)(ii), of the non-originating materials;

      • (b) the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(ii), which is an amount equal to the amount determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iv) multiplied by the remainder of one minus the regional value content, expressed as a decimal, of the engine;

      • (c) the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iii), which is an amount equal to the amount determined under paragraph 10(1)(d)(iv) multiplied by the remainder of one minus the regional value-content requirement, expressed as a decimal, for the engine; or

      • (d) the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iv), of the engine.

      The heavy-duty vehicle producer may only choose the first option if that producer has a statement, referred to in subparagraph 10(1)(d)(i), from the person from whom the engine was acquired. In this situation, the value of the rocker arm assembly, as determined under paragraph 10(1)(f), is not included in the value of non-originating materials of the heavy-duty vehicle, with respect to the engine that is used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

      The heavy-duty vehicle producer may only choose the second option if that producer has a statement, referred to in subparagraph 10(1)(d)(ii), from the person from whom the engine was acquired. In this situation, because of the application of the equation, the value of the rocker arm assembly will be included in the amount determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(ii) and will, consequently, be included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

      The heavy-duty vehicle producer may only choose the third option if that producer has a statement, referred to in subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iii), from the person from whom the engine was acquired. In this situation, because of the application of the equation, the value of the rocker arm assembly will be included in the amount determined under subparagraph 10(1)(d)(iii) and will, consequently, be included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

      Use of a non-originating automotive component incorporating the material

      The engine is a non-originating material acquired by the producer of the heavy-duty vehicle. For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle that incorporates that engine (and incorporates the rocker arm assembly), the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle is determined under paragraph 10(1)(e) with respect to that engine. The producer of the heavy-duty vehicle may choose to include in the value of non-originating materials either

      • (a) the value, as determined under subparagraph 10(1)(e)(i), of the non-originating materials that are incorporated into the engine, which is the value of the non-originating materials as determined under paragraphs 10(1)(a) through (d) and (f), or

      • (b) the value of the engine, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(e)(ii).

      The heavy-duty vehicle producer may only choose the first option if that producer has a statement, referred to in subparagraph 10(1)(e)(i), from the person from whom the engine was acquired. In this situation, the value of the rocker arm assembly, as determined under paragraph 10(1)(f), is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle, with respect to the engine that is used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

      Use of the material in a self-produced automotive component

      If the engine is a self-produced material rather than an acquired material, the heavy-duty vehicle producer is using the rocker arm assembly in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle rather than in the production of the engine, because, under subsection 7(4), the engine cannot be designated as an intermediate material. For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle, the value, under paragraph 10(1)(f), of the rocker arm assembly is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

    • Example 3

      An automotive component is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries

      A transmission, produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is imported into the territory of a NAFTA country and used in that country as original equipment in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. The transmission is an automotive component.

      Use of the automotive component

      For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle in which the transmission is used, the value of the transmission is included in the value of the non-originating materials under paragraph 10(1)(c), regardless of whether the producer imported the transmission or acquired it from someone else in the territory of a NAFTA country.

    • Example 4

      An automotive component is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries

      A transmission, produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is imported into the territory of a NAFTA country and combined with an engine to produce an engine-transmission assembly that will be used as original equipment in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. The transmission is an automotive component; the engine-transmission assembly is an automotive component assembly.

      Use of the automotive component assembly

      The automotive component assembly is acquired by a producer who uses it in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. If the automotive component assembly that incorporates the imported transmission is an originating material, the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the automotive component assembly is determined, at the choice of the producer, under any of subparagraphs 10(1)(d)(i), (ii), (iii) and (iv). (See example 1 for more detailed explanations of these provisions.) If the automotive component assembly that incorporates the imported transmission is a non-originating material, the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the automotive component assembly is determined, at the choice of the producer, under subparagraph 10(1)(e)(i) or (ii). (See example 1 for more detailed explanations of these provisions.)

      Regardless of whether the automotive component assembly is an originating material or a non-originating material, the value of the automotive component that was imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle. The transmission is a non-originating material, and, for purposes of calculating the regional value content of an automotive component assembly or heavy-duty vehicle that incorporates that transmission, the value of the transmission is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the automotive component assembly or heavy-duty vehicle that incorporates it.

    • Example 5

      A material is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries

      An aluminum ingot, produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is imported into the territory of a NAFTA country and used in that country in the production of cast block that will be used in an engine that will be used as original equipment in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. The aluminum ingot is not a listed material; the cast block is a listed material; the engine is an automotive component.

      Use of the material in an intermediate material that is a listed material

      The engine producer designates the cast block as an intermediate material under subsection 7(4). For purposes of determining the origin of that cast block, because the aluminum ingot is classified under a different heading than the cast block, the cast block satisfies the applicable change in tariff classification and is an originating material.

      Use of the listed material incorporating the material

      For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the engine that incorporates that cast block (and thus incorporates the aluminum ingot), the value of non-originating materials is determined under subsection 10(1). Because none of paragraphs 10(1)(a) through (f) require that a listed material that is an originating material be included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of a good, the value of the cast block is not included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the engine or in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of an automotive component assembly or heavy-duty vehicle that incorporates the engine.

      Because paragraph 10(1)(d) does not refer to a listed material that is an originating material, the value of the non-originating aluminum ingot used in the production of the originating cast block is not included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of any good or material that incorporates the originating cast block.

    • Example 6

      A non-originating listed material is used to produce a sub-component that is used to produce another sub-component

      A crankshaft, produced in the territory of NAFTA country A from a forging imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is a non-originating material. The crankshaft is sold to another producer, located in the same country, who uses it to produce an originating block assembly. That block assembly is sold to another producer, also located in the same country, who uses it to produce a finished block. The finished block is sold to a producer of engines, who is located in NAFTA country B, for use in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. The crankshaft is a listed material; the block assembly is a sub-component, as is the finished block.

      Calculating the regional value content of the finished block

      A sub-component is not a heavy-duty automotive good. As referred to in paragraph 10(9)(c), for purposes of calculating the regional value content of the sub-component before it is incorporated into a heavy-duty automotive good, such as when the sub-component is exported from the territory of one NAFTA country to the territory of another NAFTA country, the value of non-originating materials of the sub-component includes only the value of non-originating materials used in the production of that sub-component. Because the block assembly is an originating material, its value is not included in the value of non-originating materials of the finished block, nor is the value of the non-originating crankshaft included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the finished block because the crankshaft was used in the production of the block assembly and was not used in the production of the finished block.

      Calculating the regional value content of the component that incorporates the finished block

      For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle that incorporates a sub-component, the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the sub-component is determined under paragraph 10(1)(d) or (e) with respect to that sub-component. In this situation, the value, under paragraph 10(1)(b), of the non-originating crankshaft is included in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the engine. (See examples 1 and 2 for more detailed explanations of paragraphs 10(1)(d) and (e).)

    • Example 7

      A non-listed material is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries and is used in the production of another non-listed material

      A bumper part, produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is imported into the territory of a NAFTA country and is used in the production of a bumper. The bumper is used in the territory of a NAFTA country as original equipment in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. Neither a bumper part nor a bumper is a listed material, sub-component, automotive component or automotive component assembly.

      The non-listed material is an originating material

      The bumper is an originating material. For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle, neither the value of the imported bumper part nor the value of the bumper is included in the value of the non-originating materials.

      The non-listed material is a non-originating material

      The bumper is a non-originating material. For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle, the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle is determined under paragraph 10(1)(f) with respect to the bumper. In this situation, the value of the bumper is included in the value of non-originating materials of the heavy-duty vehicle. Because a bumper is not a listed material, the producer of the heavy-duty vehicle does not have the option, under subparagraph 10(1)(b)(ii), to include only the value of the imported bumper part in the value of non-originating materials used in the production of the heavy-duty vehicle.

    • Example 8

      Transshipment of a listed material

      A producer, located in the territory of a NAFTA country, produces, in that country, a cast head that is an originating good. The producer exports the cast head to outside the territories of the NAFTA territories, where valves, springs, valve lifters, a camshaft and gears are added to it to create a cast head assembly. An engine producer, located in the territory of a NAFTA country, imports the cast head assembly into that country and uses it in the production of an engine that will be used as original equipment in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. A cast head is a listed material; a cast head assembly is a sub-component.

      For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the engine, the value of the imported cast head assembly is included in the value of non-originating materials under paragraph 10(1)(c). The value of the cast head cannot be deducted from the value determined under paragraph 10(1)(c). Although the cast head was once an originating good, under section 16 when further production was performed with respect to the cast head outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, it was no longer an originating good.

    • Example 9

      A material is imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries and a heavy-duty vehicle producer self-produces a non-originating listed material

      A material, produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is imported into the territory of a NAFTA country and used in that country in the production of a water pump that will be used as original equipment by the same producer in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. Although the producer, under subsection 7(4), designates the water pump as an intermediate material, it is a non-originating material because it fails to satisfy the regional value-content requirement. A water pump is a listed material.

      For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle, the value of non-originating materials includes, at the choice of the producer, either the total cost, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(a)(i), of the water pump or the value, determined under clause 10(1)(a)(iii)(A), of the material imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries.

    • Example 10

      A material is acquired and used to produce a non-originating listed material

      A material, produced outside the territories of the NAFTA countries, is acquired in the territory of a NAFTA country and is used in that country in the production of a water pump that will be used as original equipment in the production of a heavy-duty vehicle. The producer of the water pump and the producer of the heavy-duty vehicle are separate, unrelated producers, located in the same country. A water pump is a listed material. The producer of the water pump elected to calculate the regional value content of the water pump in accordance with subsection 12(1) over a period set out in paragraph 12(5)(a) and using a category set out in paragraph 12(4)(b). The water pump is a non-originating material because it fails to satisfy the regional value-content requirement.

      For purposes of calculating the regional value content of the heavy-duty vehicle, the value of non-originating materials includes, at the choice of the producer, either the value, determined under subparagraph 10(1)(b)(i), of the water pump or, if the producer has a statement referred to in clause 10(1)(b)(ii)(B), the value, determined under that clause, of the material imported from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries.

      The producer has a statement referred to in clause 10(1)(b)(ii)(B) and chooses to use the value of non-originating material determined under that clause. The statement states, as is permitted under subsection 10(8), the value of non-originating material used in the production of the water pump in accordance with subsection 12(3) over a period set out in paragraph 12(5)(a) and using a category set out in paragraph 12(4)(e).

  • (6) Each of the following examples is an “Example” as referred to in subsection 2(4).

    • Example 1: subsection 14(1)

      Producer A, located in NAFTA country A, imports unfinished bearing rings of subheading 8482.99 into NAFTA country A from outside the territories of the NAFTA countries. Producer A further processes the unfinished bearing rings into finished bearing rings, which are of the same subheading. The finished bearing rings of Producer A do not satisfy an applicable change in tariff classification and therefore do not qualify as originating goods.

      The net cost of the finished bearing rings (per unit) is calculated as follows:

      • Product costs:
        • Value of originating materials blank line$0.15
        • Value of non-originating materials blank line0.75
        • Other product costsblank line 0.35
      • Period costs: (including $0.05 in excluded costs) blank line0.15
      • Other costs: blank line0.05
        • Total cost of the finished bearing rings, per unit: blank line$1.45
        • Excluded costs: (included in period costs)blank line 0.05
        • Net cost of the finished bearing rings, per unit: blank line$1.40

      Producer A sells the finished bearing rings to Producer B who is located in NAFTA country A for $1.50 each. Producer B further processes them into bearings, and intends to export the bearings to NAFTA country B. Although the bearings satisfy the applicable change in tariff classification, the bearings are subject to a regional value-content requirement.

      • Producer B does not choose to accumulate costs incurred by Producer A with respect to the bearing rings used in the production of the bearings. The net cost of the bearings (per unit) is calculated as follows:
        • Product costs:
          • Value of originating materials blank line$0.45
          • Value of non-originating materials (value, per unit, of the bearing rings purchased from Producer A) blank line1.50
          • Other product costs blank line0.75
        • Period costs: (including $0.05 in excluded costs) blank line0.15
        • Other costs: blank line0.05
        • Total cost of the bearings, per unit: blank line$2.90
        • Excluded costs: (included in period costs) blank line0.05
        • Net cost of the bearings, per unit: blank line$2.85

        Under the net cost method, the regional value content of the bearings is

        RVC=

        (NC - VNM) ÷ NC × 100

        =

        ($2.85 - $1.50) ÷ $2.85 × 100

        =47.4%

        Therefore, the bearings are non-originating goods.

      • Producer B chooses to accumulate costs incurred by Producer A with respect to the bearing rings used in the production of the bearings. Producer A provides a statement described in paragraph 14(2)(a) to Producer B. The net cost of the bearings (per unit) is calculated as follows:
        • Product costs:
          • Value of originating materials ($0.45 + $0.15) blank line$0.60
          • Value of non-originating materials (value, per unit, of the unfinished bearing rings imported by Producer A) blank line0.75
          • Other product costs ($0.75 + $0.35) blank line1.10
        • Period costs: (($0.15 + $0.15), including $0.10 in excluded costs) blank line0.30
          • Other costs: ($0.05 + $0.05) blank line0.10
          • Total cost of the bearings, per unit: blank line$2.85
          • Excluded costs: (included in period costs) blank line0.10
          • Net cost of the bearings, per unit: blank line$2.75

        Under the net cost method, the regional value content of the bearings is

        RVC=

        (NC - VNM) ÷ NC × 100

        =

        ($2.75 - $0.75) ÷ $2.75 × 100

        =72.7%

        Therefore, the bearings are originating goods.

      • Producer B chooses to accumulate costs incurred by Producer A with respect to the bearing rings used in the production of the bearings. Producer A provides to Producer B a statement described in paragraph 14(2)(b) that specifies an amount equal to the net cost minus the value of non-originating materials used to produce the finished bearing rings ($1.40 - $0.75 = 0.65). The net cost of the bearings (per unit) is calculated as follows:
        • Product costs:
          • Value of originating materials ($0.45 + $0.65) blank line$1.10
          • Value of non-originating materials ($1.50 - $0.65) blank line0.85
          • Other product costs blank line0.75
        • Period costs: (including $0.05 in excluded costs) blank line0.15
        • Other costs: blank line0.05
        • Total cost of the bearings, per unit: blank line$2.90
        • Excluded costs: (included in period costs) blank line0.05
        • Net cost of the bearings, per unit: blank line$2.85

        Under the net cost method, the regional value content of the bearings is

        RVC=

        (NC - VNM) ÷ NC × 100

        =

        ($2.85 - $0.85) ÷ $0.85 × 100

        =70.2%

        Therefore, the bearings are originating goods.

      • Producer B chooses to accumulate costs incurred by Producer A with respect to the bearing rings used in the production of the bearings. Producer A provides to Producer B a statement described in paragraph 14(2)(b) that specifies an amount equal to the value of other product costs used in the production of the finished bearing rings ($0.35). The net cost of the bearings (per unit) is calculated as follows:
        • Product costs:
          • Value of originating materials blank line$0.45
          • Value of non-originating materials ($1.50 - $0.35) blank line1.15
          • Other product costs ($0.75 + $0.35) blank line1.10
        • Period costs: (including $0.05 in excluded costs) blank line0.15
        • Other costs: blank line0.05
        • Total cost of the bearings, per unit: blank line$2.90
        • Excluded costs: (included in period costs) blank line0.05
        • Net cost of the bearings, per unit: blank line$2.85

        Under the net cost method, the regional value content of the bearings is

        RVC=

        (NC - VNM) ÷ NC × 100

        =

        ($2.85 - $1.15) ÷ $2.85 × 100

        =59.72%

        Therefore, the bearings are originating goods.

    • Example 2: subsection 14(1)

      Producer A, located in NAFTA country A, imports non-originating cotton, carded or combed, of heading 52.03 for use in the production of cotton yarn of heading 52.05. Because the change from cotton, carded or combed, to cotton yarn is a change within the same chapter, the cotton does not satisfy the applicable change in tariff classification for heading 52.05, which is a change from any other chapter, with certain exceptions. Therefore, the cotton yarn that Producer A produces from non-originating cotton is a non-originating good.

      Producer A then sells the non-originating cotton yarn to Producer B, also located in NAFTA country A, who uses the cotton yarn in the production of woven fabric of cotton of heading 52.08. The change from non-originating cotton yarn to woven fabric of cotton is insufficient to satisfy the applicable change in tariff classification for heading 52.08, which is a change from any heading outside headings 52.08 through 52.12, except from certain headings, under which various yarns, including cotton yarn of heading 52.05, are classified. Therefore, the woven fabric of cotton that Producer B produces from non-originating cotton yarn produced by Producer A is a non-originating good.

      However, under subsection 14(1), if Producer B chooses to accumulate the production of Producer A, the production of Producer A would be considered to have been performed by Producer B. The rule for heading 52.08, under which the cotton fabric is classified, does not exclude a change from heading 52.03, under which carded or combed cotton is classified. Therefore, under subsection 14(1), the change from carded or combed cotton of heading 52.03 to the woven fabric of cotton of heading 52.08 would satisfy the applicable change of tariff classification for heading 52.08. The woven fabric of cotton would be considered as an originating good.

      Producer B, in order to choose to accumulate Producer A’s production, must have a statement described in subparagraph 14(4)(a)(ii).

Chapter 27Mineral Fuels, Mineral Oils and Products of Their Distillation; Bituminous Substances; Mineral Waxes
  • Note 1: For purposes of heading 27.07, a chemical reaction is a process (including a biochemical process) which results in a molecule with a new structure by breaking intramolecular bonds and by forming new intramolecular bonds, or by altering the spatial arrangement of atoms in a molecule.

The following processes are not considered to be chemical reactions for the purposes of this definition:

  • (a) dissolving in water or other solvents;

  • (b) the elimination of solvents, including solvent water; or

  • (c) the addition or elimination of water of crystallization.

  • Note 2: For the purposes of heading 27.10, the following processes confer origin:

    • (a) Atmospheric distillation — A separation process in which petroleum oils are converted, in a distillation tower, into fractions according to boiling point and the vapor then condensed into different liquefied fractions. Liquefied petroleum gas, naphtha, gasoline, kerosene, diesel/heating oil, light gas oils and lubricating oil are produced from petroleum distillation;

    • (b) Vacuum distillation — Distillation at a pressure below atmospheric but not so low that it would be classed as molecular distillation. Vacuum distillation is useful for distilling high-boiling and heat-sensitive materials such as heavy distillates in petroleum oils to produce light to heavy vacuum gas oils and residuum. In some refineries gas oils may be further processed into lubricating oils;

    • (c) Catalytic hydroprocessing — The cracking and/or treating of petroleum oils with hydrogen at high temperature and under pressure, in the presence of special catalysts. Catalytic hydroprocessing includes hydrocracking and hydrotreating;

    • (d) Reforming (catalytic reforming) — The rearrangement of molecules in a naphtha boiling range material to form higher octane aromatics (i.e., improved antiknock quality at the expense of gasoline yield). A main product is catalytic reformate, a blend component for gasoline. Hydrogen is another by-product;

    • (e) Alkylation — A process whereby a high-octane blending component for gasolines is derived from catalytic combination of an isoparaffin and an olefin;

    • (f) Cracking — A refining process involving decomposition and molecular recombination of organic compounds, especially hydrocarbons obtained by means of heat, to form molecules suitable for motor fuels, monomers, petrochemicals, etc.:

      • (i) Thermal cracking — Exposes the distillate to temperatures of approximately 540-650°C (1000-1200°F) for varying periods of time. Process produces modest yields of gasoline and higher yields of residual products for fuel oil blending,

      • (ii) Catalytic cracking — Hydrocarbon vapors are passed at approximately 400°C (750°F) over a metallic catalyst (e.g., silica-alumina or platinum); the complex recombinations (alkylation, polymerization, isomerization, etc.) occur within seconds to yield high-octane gasoline. Process yields less residual oils and light gases than thermal cracking;

    • (g) Coking — A thermal cracking process for the conversion of heavy low grade products, such as reduced crude, straight run pitch, cracked tars and shale oil into solid coke (carbon) and lower boiling hydrocarbon products which are suitable as feed for other refinery units for conversion into lighter products; and

    • (h) Isomerization — The refinery process of converting petroleum compounds into their isomers.

  • Note 3: For purposes of heading 27.10, direct blending is defined as a refinery process whereby various petroleum streams from processing units and petroleum components from holding or storage tanks combine to create a finished product, with pre-determined parameters, of heading 27.10, provided that the non-originating material constitutes no more than 25 per cent by volume of the good.

  • Return to footnote 1For purposes of this Note, average yarn number, as applied to woven fabrics of cotton or man-made fibres means the average yarn number of the yarns contained therein. In computing the average yarn number, the length of the yarn is considered to be equal to the distance covered by it in the fabric, with all clipped yarn being measured as if continuous and with the count being taken of the total single yarns in the fabric including the single yarns in any multiple (folded) or cabled yarns. The weight shall be taken after any excessive sizing is removed by boiling or other suitable process. Any of the following formulas can be used to determine the average yarn number:

N = BYT ÷ 1000, 100T ÷ Z′, BT ÷ Z or ST ÷ 10

when:

N
is the average yarn number,
B
is the breadth (width) of the fabric in centimetres,
Y
is the metres (linear) of the fabric per kilogram,
T
is the total single yarns per square centimetre,
S
is the square metres of fabric per kilogram,
Z
is the grams per linear metre of fabric, and
Z′
is the grams per square metre of fabric.

Fractions in the resulting average yarn number shall be disregarded.
