Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (CPTPP) Amendment Bill

Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (CPTPP) Amendment Bill

Government Bill

70—1

Explanatory note

General policy statement

This Bill makes changes necessary for New Zealand to ratify the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (the CPTPP).

The CPTPP is a free trade agreement negotiated by 11 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, New Zealand, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Singapore, and Viet Nam.

The CPTPP includes many of the elements that were negotiated as part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (the TPP), but with some significant differences. On 23 January 2018, negotiations concluded and the participants agreed to suspend 22 items from the original TPP agreement. This means that some of the TPP-related outcomes have been suspended, including in the areas of intellectual property and pharmaceuticals.

The CPTPP was signed by Trade Ministers on 8 March 2018, in Chile.

The following legislation would be amended when the CPTPP enters into force for New Zealand:

  • Tariff Act 1988: Amend the New Zealand Tariff to include the CPTPP Parties as a group eligible for preferential tariff treatment and enable subsequent regulations to be made that give effect to this eligibility when ratification processes are complete and apply the preferential tariff rates agreed under the CPTPP; provide for the transitional safeguard mechanism required under the Trade Remedies Chapter of the CPTPP; and provide for the emergency action (safeguards) mechanism and associated procedures required under the Textiles and Apparel Chapter of the CPTPP:

  • Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996: Provide a 60-day comment period on proposed technical regulations that will need to be notified to the World Trade Organization, as required by the Technical Barriers to Trade Chapter of the CPTPP:

  • Wine Regulations 2006: Introduce a standard that restricts the export of wine labelled as “ice wine” that is not made from grapes frozen on the vine as required by the Wine and Distilled Spirits Annex of the Technical Barriers to Trade Chapter of the CPTPP. This amendment will come into effect 3 years after the CPTPP enters into force for New Zealand:

  • Overseas Investment Act 2005: Provide a clear power to make regulations to implement higher investment screening thresholds for overseas investments in significant business assets in order to meet the requirements in the Investment Chapter of the CPTPP, and other related existing international agreements (being the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) obligations in New Zealand’s existing trade agreements with China, Chinese Taipei, Korea, Hong Kong, and the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (P4) Agreement with Brunei, Singapore, and Chile; as well as obligations under the CER Investment Protocol with Australia). Under the CPTPP and existing MFN obligations, the screening threshold for certain non-government investors will increase from $100 million to $200 million. The threshold for Australia is currently $516 million for non-government investors and $108 million for government investors:

  • Patents Act 2013: Provide for the requirement to provide a 12-month grace period for patent applications:

  • Copyright Act 1994: Provide new rights for performers; provide additional protection for rights management information; and extend the border protection measures to allow Customs to detain exports of suspected pirated copyright works where a notice has been accepted from rights holders and give ex officio powers to Customs officers to temporarily detain suspected pirated copyright works without a notice from rights holders:

  • Trade Marks Act 2002: Provide authority to the Courts to award additional damages for trade mark infringement; extend the border protection measures to allow Customs to detain exports of suspected trade mark infringing goods where a notice has been accepted from rights holders and give ex officio powers to Customs officers to temporarily detain suspected trade mark infringing goods without a notice from rights holders; require the Courts in trade mark infringement cases to order the destruction of counterfeit goods except in exceptional cases:

  • Legislation Act 2012: Ensure that New Zealand can promptly publish on a single website all central government subordinate instruments, together with an explanation of their purpose and rationale, to the extent required by New Zealand’s international transparency obligations in the Transparency and Anti-Corruption Chapter of the CPTPP.

Departmental disclosure statement

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is required to prepare a disclosure statement to assist with the scrutiny of this Bill. The disclosure statement provides access to information about the policy development of the Bill and identifies any significant or unusual legislative features of the Bill.

National interest analysis and regulatory impact assessment

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade produced a national interest analysis (which incorporated all elements of a regulatory impact assessment) to help inform the decisions taken by the Government relating to the contents of this Bill.

A copy of the national interest analysis can be found (appended to the Report of the Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade Committee) at—

Clause by clause analysis

Clause 1 is the Title clause.

Clause 2 is the commencement clause. The Bill comes into force on the day after the date of Royal assent.

Clause 3 provides that the Bill amends the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement Amendment Act 2016 (the principal Act).

Part 1Amendments to Title and commencement of principal Act

Clauses 4 and 5 change the name of the principal Act to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership Amendment Act 2018.

Clause 6 replaces the commencement clause to enable the provisions of the principal Act to be brought into force by more than 1 Order in Council. This will enable the amendments that implement the CPTPP to be brought into force before the TPP enters into force. The clause provides that the suspended provisions of the TPP cannot be brought into force before the TPP enters into force. It is intended that a CPTPP commencement order would be made to bring the following provisions of the principal Act into force when the CPTPP enters into force for New Zealand (if the CPTPP enters into force for New Zealand before the TPP):

  • sections 9 to 27, 29 to 37, 37A to 37E, and 40(5) and their related transitional provisions (which amend the Copyright Act 1994):

  • Part 4 (which amends the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996):

  • Part 5 (which amends the Legislation Act 2012):

  • Part 6 (which amends the Overseas Investment Act 2005):

  • section 72 and its related transitional provision (which amend the Patents Act 2013):

  • Part 8 (which amends the Tariff Act 1988):

  • the relevant provisions of Part 9 (which amends the Tariff):

  • Part 10 (which amends the Trade Marks Act 2002):

  • Part 11 (which amends the Wine Regulations 2006).

The main suspended provisions in the principal Act are the following:

  • the provisions of Part 1 (amendments to the Copyright Act 1994) that relate to copyright term, technological protection measures (TPMs), and rights management information:

  • the provisions of Part 7 (amendments to the Patents Act 2013) that relate to patent term. There are no patent term extension obligations in the CPTPP.

Part 2Amendments to other provisions of principal Act

Most of Part 2 amends the other provisions of the principal Act for 2 main reasons: first, to include references to the CPTPP and, secondly, to untangle provisions of the principal Act that are needed for the CPTPP from provisions that are needed only for the TPP. Clause 10 amends the transitional provisions about performers’ rights to make the terminology neutral by referring to the WIPO treaty rather than the TPP, given that the effect of both the TPP and the CPTPP is to require New Zealand to accede to the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty done at Geneva on 20 December 1996.

The exceptions are as follows.

Clause 7 makes consequential changes to section 9, which amends the Copyright Act 1994, to take account of the Customs and Excise Act 2018.

Clause 11 repeals Part 2, which amends the Customs and Excise Act 1996. The Customs and Excise Act 2018 already incorporates the amendments made by the principal Act.

Clause 13 amends Part 5, which amends the Legislation Act 2012, to take account of developments in the plans for the publication of secondary legislation. The main changes are—

  • to refer to makers of legislation rather than administrators (in line with terminology used in the Legislation Bill):

  • to provide for links to instruments that are forwarded to the Chief Parliamentary Counsel to be published and made available on an Internet site maintained by or on behalf of the New Zealand Government (rather than necessarily on the legislation website).

Clause 14(2) adds another free trade agreement, the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement done at Wellington on 18 July 2005, to the list of agreements that may be implemented by regulations to be made under new section 61A of the Overseas Investment Act 2005. That section provides for regulations regarding alternative monetary thresholds for overseas investments in significant business assets.
