Comprehensive Economic And Trade Agreement (Ceta) Between Canada And The European Union

and, in accordance with the WTO Agreement or any other agreement to which the Parties are parties, a Contracting Party may not seek redress for breach of such an obligation in either forum. In that case, as soon as dispute settlement proceedings have been initiated on the basis of an agreement, the Contracting Party shall not take any action for breach of the essentially equivalent obligation under the other agreement, unless the chosen forum fails to make findings on that claim for procedural or judicial reasons, with the exception of the termination referred to in point 20 of Annex 29-A. or its compliance with the provisions referred to in Article 29(2) („disagreement on compliance“), or with the equivalence between the degree of suspension and the cancellation or alteration due to the infringement („disagreement on equivalence“) shall be submitted to the arbitration panel. The EU-Canada Trade Sustainability Impact Assessment (AIS), a three-part study commissioned by the European Commission from independent experts and completed in September 2011, provided a comprehensive forecast of ceta`s impact. [30] [31] [32] It foresees a number of macroeconomic and sectoral effects, indicating that CETA could lead to a real GDP increase of 0.02 to 0.03% in the long term, while Canada could record an increase of 0.18 to 0.36%; The „Investments“ section of the report suggests that these figures could be higher if the increases needed for investment are taken into account. At the sectoral level, the study forecasts the largest growth in production and trade, driven by the liberalization of services and the elimination of tariffs on sensitive agricultural products. It also proposes that CETA should have a positive social impact if it contains provisions on core labour standards and the ILO`s decent work agenda. The study describes a large number of effects in different „cross-cutting“ components of CETA: it opposes controversial ISDS provisions in the NAFTA style; foresees potentially unbalanced benefits of a chapter on public procurement; believes that CETA will lead to an upward harmonisation of intellectual property rights rules, in particular to the amendment of Canadian legislation on intellectual property rights; and foresees implications for competition policy and several other areas.

The Parties recognize that in the event of an existing or potential hazard or conditions that can reasonably be expected to cause injury or illness to a natural person, a Party shall not use the lack of complete scientific security as a reason for postponing CETA, reflecting the joint commitment of Canada and the EU to increase trade and investment, and To create jobs on both sides of the Atlantic. . . .
