Japan will grant the same treatment as the current CPTPP for UK agriculture, forestry, and fisheries products. For agricultural safeguard measures, Japan will retain the trigger levels and mechanisms for the other CPTPP members while including imports from the UK under the Japan-UK Economic Partnership Agreement for triggering the safeguard against the UK under the CPTPP.
