Country of Origin may not be the Country of Export

Did you know that Country of Origin and Country of Export are not the same thing?  Country of Origin indicates where your product is made

Country of Export indicates where your product is shipped from.  Failing to make this distinction could result in an AMPS penalty for incorrect Tariff Treatment.
