The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), currently being negotiated between the European Union and the United States, aims at removing trade barriers in a wide range of economic sectors to make it easier to buy and sell goods and services between the EU and the US.

Since 1999, the EU has conducted a Trade SIA for all its major trade negotiations. The Trade SIA aims to assess how the trade and trade-related provisions under negotiation could affect economic, social, and environmental issues in the EU and in the US as well as in other relevant countries, in particular developing countries, but also in Turkey given that is in a customs union with the EU. Furthermore, it should make recommendations to maximise the benefits of the agreement and prevent or minimise potential negative impacts.

Trade SIAs cover two complementary components of equal importance: (i) economic, environmental and social assessments; (ii) a representative consultation process involving trading partners and stakeholders, including European social partners and social dialogue committees.

The Trade Sustainability Impact Assessment (Trade SIA) on the TTIP was launched in February 2014. The consultants carrying out this study are ECORYS.

The purpose of this meeting is to present and discuss with civil society the draft inception report of the study with a view to the elaboration of the draft interim technical report.
