Standoff at WTO

"The World Trade Organization (WTO) is in Buenos Aires this week for its biennial Ministerial Conference with increasingly diminished expectations for updating international trade rules. One subject not on the formal agenda, but being hotly debated, is the ongoing U.S. block on the appointment of new members to the WTO Appellate Body — the tribunal with the final word in resolving trade disputes between organization members. A third seat on the seven-member body will become vacant by the time trade ministers leave Argentina, and if the nine-month-old impasse is not resolved soon, the entire dispute settlement system will become increasingly dysfunctional at a time of renewed trade tension."

AMPS Regulation Amendments

Have your say!  On October 21, 2017 The Canadian Food and Inspection Agency launched a 60-day public consultation on proposed amendments to the Agriculture and Agri-Food Administrative Monetary Penalties Regulations. The proposed amendments would allow Administrative Monetary Penalties to be issued to all food businesses who do not comply with certain provisions of the Safe Food for Canadians Act and the proposed Safe Food for Canadians Regulations.

After four engaging public webinars, the CFIA has added new questions and answers [http://inspection.gc.ca/about-the-cfia/accountability/consultations-and-engagement/agriculture-and-agri-food-amps-regulations/questions-and-answers/eng/1508197043560/1508197044028] to the website which, along with other online resources, you may find helpful when submitting your comments.

The consultation closes on December 20th, 2017. Submit your comments or questions to:
