New Regional and International Landscape
On November 30, the leaders of the tri-lateral countries signed the USMCA at the G-20 Leaders’ Summit. Now, each country’s national legislatures need to ratify the USMCA, meaning most of its new provisions will not go into effect until 2020.
CANENA advances the regional harmonization of electrotechnical product safety Standards for products intended for use in North America by reducing technical barriers to trade caused by differing Standards, national conformity assessment, and product installation criteria.
Today, CANENA has produced more than 90 regionally harmonized electrotechnical safety Standards. CANENA facilitates transparent regional collaboration with participating standard development organizations that provide technical input. CANENA also shepherds the harmonized Standard development process to national publication and recognition by regulatory authorities.
