Basics by Free Trade Agreement: CAFTA-DR

If I believe after thoroughly reviewing my product, its inputs, and the applicable rule of origin, that there remains ambiguity as to the "originating" status of the product under the CAFTA-DR, is there a way that I can find out the position of the customs authority in the receiving country prior to the arrival of my goods in that country?
The customs authority of importing country will issue "advance rulings" at the written request of the importer, exporter, or producer on questions of tariff classification, customs valuation, country of origin marking, and whether the good qualifies as originating under the Agreement. Extensive information regarding the facts and circumstances of the inquiry will be required by the customs authority prior to issuing such a ruling.
