Trade with the United States: Council authorises negotiations on elimination of tariffs for industrial goods and on conformity assessment

The Council today approved mandates for the Commission to open negotiations with the United States on two agreements:

  • a trade agreement limited to the elimination of tariffs for industrial goods only, excluding agricultural products;
  • an agreement on conformity assessment that would have as its objective the removal of non-tariff barriers, by making it easier for companies to prove their products meet technical requirements both in the EU and the US while maintaining a high level of protection in the EU.  More details HERE
