Following the start of provisional application of the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) on 21 September 2017, Commission Implementing Regulation 2017/1781 was adopted with details on derogations from product-specific origin rules agreed in CETA within origin quotas. This concerns certain agricultural products, certain textiles and apparel, and cars.

Belgium has meanwhile confirmed that it is referring questions on the legality of certain CETA provisions on investment protection to the Court of Justice of the EU.
