CAFTA stands for Central America Free Trade Agreement.  DR stands for Dominican Republic.

On August 5, 2004, the United States signed the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR) with five Central American countries (Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua) and the Dominican Republic. The CAFTA-DR is the first free trade agreement between the United States and a group of smaller developing economies.

Unlike NAFTA, there is no official CAFTA-DR certificate of origin form. Rather, Article 4.16 of the CAFTA-DR agreement provides that claims for preferential treatment may be made in any written form, as long as the following required information is provided:
  • Name of person that certifies and when necessary, contact information or any other form of identification;
  • Tariff classification under the harmonized system and description of the merchandise;
  • Upon the request of custom authorities, provide additional information that demonstrates the origin of the product;
  • Date of Certification;
  • Information demonstrating that the good is originating;
  • If the Certification will be use for several shipments, the period covered by the Certification should be detailed (not to exceed 12 months).
While the U.S. has not yet issued a suggested CAFTA-DR certificate of origin form, the Central American countries that are members of CAFTA-DR have preliminary agreed to use the same suggested certificate of origin format.
