United States-Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act

The CBTPA countries are a subset of CBERA countries with expanded duty-free access to the U.S. market.

The majority of CBTPA imports are hydrocarbons and textiles. Almost 270 non-textile tariff items are eligible, including footwear, tuna, leather goods, travel goods, and watches and watch parts. CBTPA non-textiles must meet the NAFTA rules of origin (HTSUS General Note 12). Non-Textile CBTPA goods must be supported by a CBTPA Certificate of Origin, CBP Form 450, signed by the exporter, and in the importer’s possession at the time of the preference claim.

The following countries are CBTPA beneficiaries: Barbados, Belize, Curacao, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, and Trinidad and Tobago.
