Trade policy committee

TACD’s work on trade focuses on raising awareness to EU and US policymakers on the impact of trade agreements on consumers. Through its work on trade, TACD aims to strengthen the dialogue between consumer representatives and policymakers and provide recommendations on regulatory, economic and trade issues.

In the past, TACD was heavily involved in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations and raising the consumer perspective.  TACD raised a number of concerns in key areas of consumer policy and called on negotiators to ensure that the TTIP really benefited consumers and society. As of 2017, TTIP negotiations have been on hold.

The co-chairs of the Trade policy committee are: Léa Auffret (BEUC), and Melanie Foley (Public Citizen).
