Nafta 2.0

The US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) (or NAFTA 2.0) if implemented as proposed will affect many changes.  One potential change is to eliminate the current NAFTA Certificate of Origin as a requirement.  Rather, the burden for origin certifications/attestations will be placed more on the importer.  Will this change in origin certifications make for more streamlined imports and exports under the three-party agreement - or is it more likely to result in increased potential for negligent and erroneous claims?
