Basics by Free Trade Agreement: CAFTA-DR

What if my good is produced in the United States, but is transshipped through a third country on its way to a CAFTA-DR country? Can it still qualify for preferential treatment?
It can, provided it does not undergo processing in the third country. According to CAFTA-DR, a good that undergoes subsequent production or any other operation outside the territories of the Parties, other than unloading, reloading, or any other operation necessary to preserve it in good condition or to transport the good to the territory of a Party can no longer qualify for preferential treatment under the Agreement.
