The Commission publishes further TTIP documents in ongoing transparency commitment

The European Commission today publishes further documents from the ongoing negotiations on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), in line with its commitment to enhanced transparency in the ongoing trade negotiations with the United States.

The documents made public today include the recent EU proposal on regulatory cooperation which the Commission submitted to the United States during the last round of talks in February.

Regulatory cooperation is an innovative part and a key pillar of TTIP. Regulatory cooperation with the United States has been on the agenda for many years and has produced good results in areas of common interest (e.g. ranging from aviation and marine safety to organic labels, electric cars and smart grids).

Explanatory documents about this key aspect of the talks are available online. Other published documents include EU proposals on trade in goods, agriculture and Customs and Trade Facilitation.
