Title: United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (DFARS Case 2020-D032) 

DoD is issuing a final rule to amend the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement to implement the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), as enacted by Congress in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Implementation Act (Pub. L. 116-113). The USMCA supersedes the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Chapter 13 of the USMCA (government procurement) applies only to the United States and Mexico; as a result, Canada is no longer a Free Trade Agreement country.  As a result of this rule all references in the DFARS to NAFTA and 19 U.S.C. 3301 note will be replaced by references to the USMCA and 19 U.S.C. chapter 29 (sections 4501-4732), respectively, and "Canada” will be removed from all listings of Free Trade Agreement countries in the DFARS.
