ENVI Relevant Legislative Areas of the EU-US Trade and Investment Partnership Negotiations (TTIP)

05-02-2015

In February 2013, the European Union (EU) and the United States of America (US) started the procedures necessary for initiating formal negotiations on a free trade agreement, referred to as the “Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership” (TTIP). The first round of negotiations took place in Washington D.C. in July 2013, the seventh round ended on 3 October 2014 and the eight round is taking place in Brussels from 2 to 6 February 2015. In order to monitor the on-going negotiations, the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) commissioned a study on "ENVI Relevant Legislative Areas of the EU-US Trade and Investment Partnership Negotiations (TTIP)". The study complemented a 2013 study on “Legal Implications of TTIP for the Acquis Communautaire in ENVI Relevant Sectors” for the ENVI Committee. This leaflet presents the key findings of the 2014 study.
