to the Commission
Rule 138
Pascal Arimont (PPE)

 Subject:  Transparency regarding free trade negotiations with the US

On 15 April 2019, the Council approved mandates for the Commission to open negotiations with the United States on two agreements:

‘a trade agreement limited to the elimination of tariffs for industrial goods only, excluding agricultural products and

an agreement on conformity assessment that would have as its objective the removal of non-tariff barriers, by making it easier for companies to prove their products meet technical requirements both in the EU and the US while maintaining a high level of protection in the EU’(1).

1. Which documents will the Commission disclose with regard to the negotiations and how will it provide the public with a comprehensible insight into the state of negotiations and the sectors concerned, so that potential risks can be identified and investigated at an early stage by those concerned?

2. When will a detailed impact assessment regarding these agreements be published?
