Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement

Chapter Six: Standards-Related Measures

Letter (Building Products) from Canada

September 22, 2014

Mr. Kyong-lim Choi
Chief Negotiator for the Republic of Korea
Seoul, Korea

Dear Mr. Kyong-lim Choi,

I have the honour to confirm the understanding reached between the delegations of the Republic of Korea and Canada during the negotiations relating to the Standards-Related Measures Chapter of the Free Trade Agreement between our two Governments.

During the negotiations, our delegations discussed the establishment of a technical ad hoc working group on standards-related measures related to building products and related assemblies. We agreed that, pursuant to Article 6.5.2(g) (Cooperation in Sector-Specific Initiatives), a technical ad hoc working group on standards-related measures related to building products and related assemblies will be established by Canada and Korea, at the request of either Party, without delay following entry into force of this Agreement to facilitate trade through cooperation and information sharing on standards-related measures in this sector.

I have the honour to propose that this letter and your letter in reply confirming that your Government shares this understanding shall constitute an integral part of the Free Trade Agreement, but that neither Party may have recourse to dispute settlement under the Free Trade Agreement regarding this letter.

I would be grateful for your confirmation by reply letter that the Korean delegation shares the above understanding.

Sincerely,
Ian Burney
Chief Negotiator for Canada
