CANENA´s role in the new regional and international

The 30th Annual General Meeting of CANENA will take place in Mexico City, Mexico, on February 22 and 23, 2023 at the Maria Isabel Sheraton Hotel.

When NAFTA came into effect 30-years ago, it lifted tariffs on the majority of goods produced by the signatory nations.  A free trade area however is not a common market, the latter allowing for the unchecked movement of goods. This meant that goods entering the trade area would need to comply with national laws and technical regulations.  Having identified the potential for differing technical regulations and standards a threat to the vitality of the electrical industry, the industry set about to address it by creating CANENA.  CANENA provides the means to extend the national model of self-regulation through voluntary industry efforts to develop electrotechnical safety standards in collaboration with the stakeholder community.

The program for the 30th Annual General Meeting of CANENA will focus on the past, present, and future of CANENA, including its role the new regional and international landscape presented in the USMCA. The first day consists of a distinguish panel presenting and answering questions on “CANENA at the Beginning”, “CANENA Today”, and “SDOs at CANENA”. Speakers include the the leaders of NEMA, EFC, and CANAME. Day two features Keynote speaker Eduardo Montemayor Trevino discussing the new Mexican Quality Infrastructure Law.
