Save the Date | 2019 Annual General Meeting in Mexico City

The 27th CANENA Annual General Meeting will be held February 27–28 at Sheraton Mexico City Maria Isabel Hotel in Mexico City.

The Members Forum will focus on the process and challenges of standardization in Mexico as well as the role of CANENA under the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

Leaders of the U.S., Mexico, and Canada will meet in Buenos Aires on November 29, 2018, to sign the USMCA. Its objective is to replace NAFTA by having it ratified by each country during 2019, with it entering into force in either late 2019 or early 2020. The actual timing of implementation will depend on how quickly concerns raised by each legislature are resolved. The details of the agreement, how it differs from NAFTA, and what it means to regional harmonization of electrotechnical requirements will be the primary focus of the 2019 CANENA Annual General Meeting.

CANENA to Expedite Standards Development and Harmonization

Harmonized Standards help to reduce costs and expand markets, especially as local governments adopt new technologies and solutions to support the unprecedented rate and scale of global urbanization. The electrical industry must keep pace with emerging technologies to develop corresponding electrotechnical safety Standards, update product installation practices, and develop other value-added technical documents. Regional harmonization will need to match this pace of innovation. CANENA’s role is to focus on electrotechnical Standards harmonization activities within the Americas. In the coming year, the organization will work with its counterparts to help improve the Standards development and publication processes.
