Regulatory cooperation in CETA and TTIP

AK EUROPA, the Brussels office of the Austrian Federal Chamber of Labour, and the ÖGB Europabüro, the Brussels office of the Austrian Trade Union Federation, would like to invite you to our panel debate:

Regulatory cooperation in CETA and TTIP

Wednesday, 24th of June 2015, 18:30h

Permanent Representation of Austria to the EU
Avenue de Cortenbergh 30, 1040 Bruxelles, 1st floor

The new generation of EU trade agreements goes far beyond the classic topics such as tariff dismantling and removing technical trade barriers. Hence, the majority of the anticipated trading profits is the result of the agreements of the EU with the USA and Canada and the reduction of so-called non-tariff barriers to trade. However, the term “barrier to trade” can be interpreted in many ways, and may also affect a wide range of regulations and standards relating to consumers, workers, health or the environment.

Prof. Peter-Tobias Stoll, University of Goettingen, will present the results of a legal opinion with the title "Regulatory Cooperation in CETA and TTIP". He and his team have addressed among other the questions, to which extent European standards for the protection of the environment, health, workers and consumer interests will be guaranteed, and to which extent the contractual parties will still have a right to sovereign domestic protection policies.

On the panel:

Peter-Tobias STOLL
, Professor, University of Goettingen

Fernando PERREAU DE PINNINCK, Head of Unit Tariff and non-tariff negotiations, DG TRADE, European Commission

Ursula PACHL, Deputy Director General, BEUC The Consumer Organisation

Éva DESSEWFFY, Chamber of Labour (AK) Vienna

Moderation: Petra PINZLER, Die ZEIT

The discussion will be held in German and English with simultaneous translation.

After the discussion we invite you to a buffet.
