Appendix 1603.d.1 Of Chapter 16 Of The Nafta Agreement

The documentation requirement was imposed to make it clear that the proposed activity is incidental or related to the sale of devices or machinery or computer software. The other parties to the agreement meet the same requirements. This does not mean that a warranty or service contract must have the same date as the sales contract. For services provided by third parties in particular, it may take a few months after the sale before the company that installed or maintained the machine is identified and contracted. Equipment or machinery leased or leased by a company outside of Canada is not covered by the provision of customer services. For computer software, “Buy” contains a licensing agreement. As has already been said, one of the fundamental principles of the NAFTA chapter on immigration is reciprocity. While the procedures of a U.S. or Mexican POE may not be exactly the same as ours, Canadians are subject to exactly the same criteria to facilitate temporary entry into NAFTA. Canadians should contact a U.S. consulate or consulate for more information. Since NAFTA is a facilitation agreement, the applicant should be given every opportunity to prove that the criteria for the admission of business travellers are met and to provide missing documents by other means, for example. B for example by fax.

Chapter 16 facilitates the temporary entry of citizens of the United States, Mexico and Canada whose activities are related to trade in goods or services or investments. NAFTA is a reciprocal agreement and Canadians will receive similar treatment when they enter the United States or Mexico. Chapter 16 is not a substitute, but complements our existing general provisions. A U.S. or Mexican business person wishing to enter Canada may be considered in accordance with NAFTA and general provisions applicable to all foreign workers. NAFTA`s immigration provisions are of particular interest to Canadian, American and Mexican teachers who have been offered temporary internships at university, university and seminary. The aim is to provide information on the application of the NAFTA temporary accession chapter to higher education, higher education and seminary teachers. While NAFTA provides only for after-sales situations, the general R187 rule for business travellers, under which this section of NAFTA is implemented, allows individuals to participate in sales and leasing contracts. The other three categories of contractors are entitled to work permits through the R204 (a) that exempt persons who are granted entry under an international agreement between Canada and other countries from the LMIA procedure.

Administrative codes were assigned to each category. On September 30, 2018, the United States, Canada and Mexico agreed on an agreement to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with a new trade agreement, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Chapter 16 of the USMCA, “Temporary Entry for Business people,” contains very few amendments to the current NAFTA Chapter 16 with the same title. On the other hand, the structure and language of Chapter 16 of the USMCA differed significantly from the trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) text, which included an abbreviated chapter, followed by country-by-country schedules. This report summarizes the USCMA chapter and its implications. The initial guarantee or service contract may be renewed, provided that the sale contract or the original warranty or service contract includes a provision for renewal. The after-sales service therefore continues to be contractually bound in connection with the sale of equipment or machinery or computer software. Leases must be the first cross-border transaction that must result in a sale. The lease agreement between the Canadian buyer and a final consumer applies as long as the equipment remains the property of the original purchaser and the sales, warranty or service contract is still in effect.
