American Coatings Association


ACA In Action 

ACA recently sent an Issue Backgrounder to Congress, outlining the positive impact NAFTA has borne the U.S. coatings industry. In it, ACA echoed its comments to the USTR: consider NAFTA negotiations with a “do no harm” approach. At the same time, ACA identified a few areas for improvement as part of the renegotiation process.

  • Re-importation of Goods
  • Customs & Trade Facilitation
  • Rules of Origin for NAFTA Goods
  • Standards Harmonization for Transport of Dangerous Goods

ACA believes Congress shares industry’s view that maintaining this beneficial agreement in a trilateral form is the best outcome, and urges Congress to continue working to ensure a level playing field for U.S. exports.
