Drafting Technical Specs Under the New Trade Agreements Webinar

The ​new ​trade ​agreements ​impose ​obligations ​as ​to ​how ​technical ​specifications ​may ​be ​drafted ​when ​issued ​as ​part ​of ​a ​procurement ​process. ​This ​has ​an ​impact ​on ​public ​sector ​procurement ​practices ​and ​raises ​a ​number ​of ​challenges.

​Public ​sector ​organizations ​can ​now ​expect ​more ​objections ​as ​to ​how ​technical ​specifications ​are ​established ​and ​used. ​

This ​session ​will ​provide ​an ​analysis ​that ​can ​be ​used ​to ​navigate ​through ​these ​issues ​and ​will ​consider ​the ​application ​of ​some ​tribunal ​decisions ​that ​provide ​guidance ​in ​establishing ​technical ​specifications ​that ​are ​compliant ​with ​the ​obligations ​under ​the ​trade ​agreements.
