We understand that ChAFTA is a new agreement and industry may have some concerns leading up to its commencement. The Department will work closely with industry to ensure that there is a clear understanding of the requirements under ChAFTA and to further work through some of the finer detail.
We assess non-compliance using a risk-based approach to identify common non-compliant behaviour. This will inform treatment responses to ensure they are proportionate to the offence committed. ChAFTA does not detract from the current compliance approach but any responses to non-compliance will take into account the provisions of Article 2.10.2 of the agreement.
