GTS process to manage USMCA accumulation provision

55 Views Last edit Dec 21, 2020 at 06:02 PM 4 rev

Hi GTS Gurus

Looking for a solution either thru standard functionality or thru enhancement to manage FTA - USMCA accumulation provision.

Accumulation provision is allowed by USMCA where even though a component is not qualified, one of its raw materials may have a qualified component of its own with a qualified value, known as "accumulation value" that can be used in preference calculation of the ultimate material.

Take the example of a BOM material ABC with raw material components A, B & C See Attached "PIC 1"

Considering Component B has a qualifying component value of 40% and RVC(Method) rule: "Qualifies if Qualifying Components =/>51%", we will get two different results if we incorporate the accumulation value for component B in the preference determination calculation. Please check "PIC 2"

The question is if GTS has a standard way to capture the accumulation value (in above example B) provided by the vendor and utilize the same in Preference Determination. Or is there a preferred development design?

Thanks for your help.
