Most of the CTPA regulations contained in this document were included in Part T of Part 10 of the CBP Regulations (19 CFR Part 10). However, where the implementation of CTPA is more appropriate under existing regulations, the CTPA regulatory text has been incorporated into an existing part of the CBP Regulation. In addition, this document contains several cross-references and other subsequent amendments to existing legislation to clarify the relationship between these existing provisions and the new CTPA regulations. The regulatory changes are explained below in the order in which they are displayed in this document. The U.S.-Colombia Trade Agreement (TPA) came into force on May 15, 2012. The TPA is a comprehensive free trade agreement that eliminates tariffs and removes barriers to U.S. services, including financial services. It also includes important disciplines in the areas of customs management and trade facilitation, technical barriers to trade, public procurement, investment, telecommunications, e-commerce, intellectual property rights, labour protection and the environment. The International Trade Commission (ITC) estimates that tariff reductions in the TPA, if fully implemented, will increase exports of U.S. products alone by more than $1.1 billion and support thousands of additional U.S. jobs.
The ITC also predicted that the TPA would increase U.S. GDP by $2.5 billion if fully implemented.

Other products would benefit from better market access; These include pork, beef, maize, poultry, rice, fruits and vegetables, processed products and dairy products. The United States and Colombia have worked together to remove health and plant health barriers to trade in the agricultural sector, including procedures for controlling the food security of beef, pork and poultry. These obligations are reportedly written in two separate letters on health and plant health measures, which should be attached to the free trade agreement.  In May 2004, the United States began negotiations for a free trade agreement with Colombia, Peru and Ecuador.
