NEMA Announces Senate Approval of USMCA Legislation

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has welcomed passage by the U.S. Senate in an 89-10 vote of legislation to implement the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“USMCA provides greater certainty for NEMA members working with partners in Mexico and Canada and contains many positive provisions for the U.S. electroindustry in the areas of market access, standards and conformity assessment, and regulatory cooperation,” says NEMA President and CEO Kevin J. Cosgriff.

“We look forward to the President’s signature and to working with the Administration, Congress, and our North American counterpart associations on the successful implementation of this important agreement,” Cosgriff adds.

Negotiations for the trade agreement concluded in October 2018. In early December 2019, additional USMCA commitments were agreed by the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, enabling timely consideration and passage of implementing legislation by Congress. The date of entry into force of USMCA is to be determined.
