According to the NPA, the U.S. whey powder quota will increase to 689 MT in the first year of the agreement; in the second year 1,378; 2,068 for the third year; the fourth 2.757; then 3,446 in the fifth year and 4,135 MT in the sixth year. Import quotas for certain U.S. whey powders will be eliminated until the 10th year. The new agreement amends the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that President Trump disparaged during his election campaign. The 2082-page pact adds new laws on intellectual property protection, the internet, investment rules, the treatment of state-owned enterprises and monetary rules. The agreement also contains new provisions to limit labour abuse in Mexico, which the Times says is due to pressure from Democrats who now control the U.S. House of Representatives and without the support of which the treaty could not enter into force. According to the NPA, the new pact will also facilitate some aspects of the supply of ingredients.

A product will now be able to have up to 10% of its components from countries other than the United States, Mexico or Canada, while still benefiting from the trade agreement. This corresponds to a 7% circumstance under NAFTA.
