The Canada-Us-Mexico Agreement Enters Into Force July 1

On June 1, 2020, the USTR Office issued the uniform rules[30] which are the last hurdle before the implementation of the agreement on July 1, 2020. “Implementation is not as good as they are willing to impose,” said California Congressman Jimmy Gomez. “We will be very attentive to how the agreement will be implemented.” “We`ve always talked about agreements that don`t have teeth, and this one`s grinding your teeth,” said Ben Davis, director of international affairs for the United Steelworkers union. “Maybe not a full mouth, maybe not as spicy as we need it, but it has a few teeth, and we`re all waiting to see how it goes.” Representatives of the American Laboratory Federation and the Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) criticized the work standards at the USMCA as unenforceable and toothless. [110] Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said, “The new rules will make it more difficult to lower drug prices for seniors and all those who need access to life-saving medicine”[111] and reflected the measure that extends patent duration for biologics to 10 years and limits access to new generic drugs for entry into the market. 2. On April 24, 2020, the USTR sent to Congress, in accordance with the delegated authority to the United States Trade Representative (USTR), the written notification under Section 106 (a) (1) (G) of the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 (Title I of Public Law 114-26), 129 Stat. 319, 350 (19 U.C 4205 (a) (1) (G)) and , pursuant to Section 101 (b) of the USMCA Implementation Act, informed Congress that the USMCA will take effect on July 1, 2020.

State Department press release] [Proclamation to take certain measures in accordance with the USMCA Implementation Act and for other purposes] [Canada CUSMA website] [Government of Mexico publishes T-MEC entry into force (in Spanish)] On April 3, 2020, Canada informed the United States and Mexico that it had completed its national process of ratifying the agreement. [104] On this occasion, Us Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the U.S. contract implementation authority, established the USMCA Center to coordinate CBP`s implementation of the contract in the United States. According to CBP, the agreement modernizes “certain NAFTA provisions that reflect the evolution of 21st century technology and supply chain” and “provides more efficient trade, greater implementation and more economic opportunities for North America.” The USMCA calls for “new approaches to rules of origin, access to agricultural markets, digital trade and financial services” and aims to protect workers` rights in key industries and strengthen the protection of intellectual property rights. 27. Section 202 of the KORUS Act provides rules for determining whether goods imported into the United States originate from the territory of a contracting party to the KORUS and are therefore eligible for the KORUS right and other treatment. Section 202 (o) (2) (b) (i) (i) of the KORUS Act authorizes the President to proclaim, as an integral part of the HTS, the rules of origin established by the KORUS and to announce, subject to the consultation and transfer requirements provided for in Section 104, the changes to these previously proclaimed rules of origin. Mr. Lighthizer also pointed out that the United States, which had access to the Canadian milk market as part of the agreement, was monitoring the sector for possible violations of the agreement. And the government is considering extending tariffs on Canadian aluminum exports. In the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Donald Trump`s campaign included a promise to renegotiate or eliminate NAFTA if the renegotiations fail.

[21] After the election, Trump made a series of changes that influenced trade relations with other countries.
