SME Survey in the context of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)

  • Policy field: Trade
  • Target group: EU businesses, with a special focus on Small and Medium Sized enterprises
  • Closing Date: Completed - 05/01/2015

Objective of the consultation

The European Commission is launching an on-line SME survey in the context of TTIP negotiations to collect information regarding the trade barriers currently faced by European industries and individual companies when doing business with the US.

Help us understand the problems experienced when exporting to the US so that the Commission's negotiators of TTIP get the best deal for European citizens and companies. We would like to ask you to be as specific as possible in your answers.

The survey is being carried out by Ecorys, a consultancy working on behalf of the European Commission. Your answer will also feed into Ecorys' overall independent assessment of the impact of an EU-US trade agreement but no reference to the survey respondents will be made in its reports. The information you give us will be treated as strictly confidential and anonymous.
