the North American Free Trade Agreement

Make a difference. Submit your comments and let your voice be heard!

The U.S. Government is seeking public comments related to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). On May 18th, the Administration formally notified Congress of its intent to renegotiate NAFTA. As stipulated by the Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015 (TPA), this notification triggers a 90-day period before negotiations with Canada and Mexico can begin. As part of this process, the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has published a Federal Register Notice (FRN) soliciting public comments on the Agreement – which will assist the Administration in identifying its negotiating priorities.

The FRN comment period will be open through June 12th, 2017. To submit comments, or to request to participate in a public hearing on June 27th at the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington, DC, please visit www.regulations.gov and search for docket number USTR-2017-0006.
