ITA Utilizes Free Trade Agreement to Keep US Company Competitive in Chile
Epson Chile reported that Chile’s customs agency had accused the company of undervaluing its imports of ink cartridges and other printing supplies. Epson maintained that it had not undervalued its goods and should not be subject to over $4 million in potential penalties and fines. ITA raised these concerns with the Chilean government specifically pressing the importance of transparent customs valuation procedures and predictable appeal mechanisms consistent with its trade agreement obligations. After review, the Chilean customs agency found that Epson was not guilty of undervaluing its products, in turn demonstrating the value of the WTO Customs Valuation Agreement and the U.S. – Chile FTA.
