In February 2013, the United States and European Union announced plans to begin negotiating what they dubbed a trade and investment agreement but will focus on "regulatory issues and non-tariff barriers.”
This proposed Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) could pose threats to American consumers, the best of EU and U.S. food safety, toxics, climate, energy, privacy, financial stability, consumer labeling, drug and medical device safety and testing, competition, emerging technology, and other consumer and environmental laws, regulations, and procedures.
Please join us for a briefing of the TAFTA negotiations.
