Committee vote

Vote on Recommendations for the European Commission regarding the TTIP negotiations (2014/2228(INI)).

The European Parliament has expressed its view on what it expects from the TTIP negotiations before they were launched in June 2013 and before the Council adopted its TTIP negotiating mandate. After more than 9 negotiating rounds and TTIP half way through, as Commissioner Malmström recently said, INTA decided that it is time to take stock and assess, where the negotiations stand.

This report on TTIP negotiations is intended to assess the main results of the negotiations after ca 1.5 years of discussions and to express the Parliament's views on the main issues of a potential TTIP Agreement.

In order to ensure a coherent approach this report contains opinions of 13 Committees.

This will be the first occasion of the new EP to take an official position on the TTIP negotiations, whereby the aim is to provide guidance to the EU negotiators, what they need to take into account to get support of the EP for the final agreement, once it is concluded, and to send out a clear message to the US counterparts, what the representatives of the European citizens are expecting from a possible future trade deal.

EU targets trade in conflict minerals

MEPs will vote on measures aiming to stop trade in illicitly mined  "conflict minerals" fuelling armed conflicts, while promoting legitimate trade helping people in conflict areas.

In INTA Committee the Commission legislative proposal for a voluntary approach was strengthened by obliging smelters and refiners to do due diligence, while giving other companies incentives to opt in. The Report on conflict-free trade in minerals is now put to vote in plenary.

Debate on ISDS with Commissioner Cecilia Malmström

30-04-2015 - 12:03

Commissioner Malmström  discussed with INTA Members the way forward  to resolve in the best manner disputes by foreign investors in the context of TTIP, known as Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS). 

Some MEPs are in favour of reforming the current international arbitration mechanism by introducing a series of improvements such as greater transparency, appeals and a code of conduct for arbitrators.  Other MEPs have concerns that the awards granted by such tribunals can have a deterrent effect on regulators and are therefore against such a mechanism and some are see a permanent investment court staffed by permanent judges as the solution.

Under the point on "Structured Dialogue between the European Parliament and the Commission", the Trade Commissioner also discussed with INTA Members initiatives put forward by the Commission in it's work programme to be launched in 2016.
