Note for the Attention of the Trade Policy Committee
By European Commission: Directorate-General for Trade
The purpose of this paper is to outline the main elements of a possible approach under the TTIP to promote regulatory compatibility/convergence and recognition in the motor vehicles sector, while achieving the levels of health, safety, and environmental protection that each side deems appropriate. These elements build on the ideas put forward jointly by the motor vehicles and parts and components industries from the EU and the US as well as the need and the duty of regulators to achieve the necessary health, environmental and safety protection levels.
