TTIP factsheets: The issues explained

24 September 2015

These factsheets have been developed to raise awareness and understanding across Europe about the EU-US transatlantic trade agreement (known as TTIP), which has the potential to be the biggest bilateral free trade agreement in history.

Developed in partnership with The European Consumer Organisation (BEUC), they provide insights into the risks the agreement poses to crucial European social, health and environmental protection, including key food safety measures.

The factsheets give an overview of the environmental and consumer impact of crucial aspects of the negotiations, including transparency in the negotiations, plans to include an investor-state dispute settlement mechanism (ISDS), food and farming, and the likely impacts of TTIP on national and local democracy.
