FAQ

I’m shipping my product to Canada. How do I fill out a NAFTA Certificate of Origin? Are there other documents to be filled out?
Your shipment may need a NAFTA Certificate of Origin and a Shipper’s Export Declaration. To learn more about export documentation, please visit Export.gov to learn more.The U.S. Commercial Service’s Trade Information Center or the trade specialists at your local Export Assistance Center can also help answer these questions. Call 1-800-USA-TRAD(E) or find your local Export Assistance Center.International Trade Law includes the appropriate rules and customs for handling trade between countries. However, it is also used in legal writings as trade between private sectors, which is not right.This branch of law is now an independent field of study as most governments has become part of the world trade, as members of the World Trade Organization (WTO).Since the transaction between private sectors of different countries is an important part of the WTO activities, this latter branch of law is now a very important part of the academic works and is under study in many universities across the world.
In the US, is it illegal to pretend to be a minority group for the sake of a job/university application?
When I was a post-doc in the USA at both universities where I worked I was given a yellow form to fill out. I honestly and correctly put myself down as “Australian” under “Other”.In both universities this was crossed out and I was assigned as being an “Asian-Pacific islander”. As far as I know I have no Asian or Pacific Islander descent. I was not asked my opinion on the matter. No-one came to check me out but I loved filling out the forms I was always being sent where I was expected to state how oppressed I was. It was quite true that a few people were nasty about my racial/ethnic origin in the USA but nothing like as bad as I got in Canada. Canada is the only country I ever worked in where being Australian was obviously held against me.If I had used my university awarded designation on some other form would I have been doing something naughty? After all I was designated Asian/Pacific Islander by appointed authority: I did not choose to make such a claim.The take-home message I got from the experience was that all racial/ethnic statistics in America were rubbish. Nobody goes round and checks people out - simply because it would be both illegal and impossible.By the way do realise I am of indefinite racial origin but there is no such documentation on birth certificates in Australia, even in the 19th century. I have photos of my mother and father and my maternal grandparents and nothing else. There is no-one alive I could ask about such matters.
