How do the EU and the US regulate? New study to feed the EU-US trade negotiations

A new independent study by the US and European scholars offers a unique comparison of the EU and the US regulatory and legislative systems.

The study published today analyses in detail the different steps in regulatory processes on either side of the Atlantic. Special emphasis is placed on impact assessment/cost benefit analysis, stakeholder consultations and international regulatory cooperation. This work is meant to foster mutual understanding of each other’s regulatory frameworks and to inform negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

The report is published by the European Commission and was written by Prof. Richard Parker (University of Connecticut School of Law) and Prof. Alberto Alemanno (HEC Paris and NYU School of Law)
