09 Sep Agreement Between The European Community And Canada On Trade In Wines And Spirit Drinks
Neither Party may adopt or maintain measures that require that distilled spirit drinks imported from the territory of the other Party for bottling be mixed with distilled spirit drinks of the importing Party.”; See geographical provisions for agricultural and fishery products and foodstuffs other than wines and spirit drinks, Article 18 (Article 33 of the Saa), page 5, of the Agreement. The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is welcomed by SpiritsEUROPE (which represents the spirits industry in the region) and Spirits Canada (the National Trade Association of Producers, Exporters and Consumers). The EU also expressed concerns about a series of measures maintained by some provinces and stressed the importance for the parties to work in the spirit of the CETA Joint Statement. Each Contracting Party shall take all possible measures to ensure that an undertaking which has obtained in its territory a monopoly for the trade and sale of wines and spirits does not use its monopoly position to, directly or indirectly, including through its transactions with its parent company, subsidiaries or other jointly owned undertakings, when wines and spirits are sold in a market outside the territory; in which the undertaking is in a monopoly situation, which has an anti-competitive effect and leads to an sensible restriction of competition on that market. At Canada`s request, the EU provided information on the import requirements that Canadian wines and spirits must meet in order to be sold in the EU. . . .
