Text of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP)

The CPTPP is a separate treaty that incorporates, by reference, the provisions of the original Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) signed by Ministers on 4 February 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand. Under the CPTPP, signatories have implemented the original TPP between them, with the exception of a limited number of provisions which will be suspended. Suspensions will remain in place until the Parties agree to end them, by consensus.

The CPTPP treaty text should be read in conjunction with the text of the original TPP:
