The International Trade Commission has instituted an investigation into the automotive rules of origin under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. This investigation will produce a report on (1) the economic impact of these rules on U.S. gross domestic product, trade, employment, and consumers as well as production, investment, capacity, revenues, wages, and employment in U.S. automotive industries, (2) the operation of these rules and their effects on the competitiveness of U.S. automotive production and trade, (3) the relevancy of these rules in light of recent technology changes in the U.S., and (4) other matters the ITC considers relevant.

The ITC will hold a public hearing in connection with this investigation Nov. 3. Requests to appear at the hearing are due by Sept. 30, pre-hearing briefs and statements are due by Oct. 13, and post-hearing briefs and statements are due by Nov. 11. Interested parties are also invited to file written comments no later than Nov. 24. The ITC expects to submit its final report to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative by June 30, 2023.
