CACN’s Response to Australia’s Plain Packaging Law

CACN supports a strong message from Canada that it does not support the proposed action of Australia’s plain packaging regime. The regime not only sets a precedent that threatens to adversely affect Canada’s trading rights, possibly leading to excessively-restrictive packaging requirements for any product, arguably raising a health issue, but also has negative implications in the battle against trade in all counterfeit products.

CACN has sent a letter to the Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade in response to the plain packaging WTO dispute brought by the Ukraine against Australia in which Canada has observer status.
