CASUAL GOODS

2.Casual goods that are acquired in Panama are considered to originate in that country and are entitled to the benefit of the Panama Tariff if

  • (a) the marking of the goods is in accordance with the marking laws of Panama and indicates that the goods are the product of Panama or Canada; or
  • (b) the goods do not bear a mark and nothing indicates that the goods are not the product of Panama or Canada.

COMING INTO FORCE
