One of the questions discussed at the meeting was whether the TTIP offers the industry representatives on both sides of the Atlantic privileged influence on the regulation plans and therefore might cause a vanishing of environmental, social and consumer standards.
In this context, Klaus Jacob gave a presentation on the monitoring of standards, considering policy assessment. He focused on the questions, supervision should be developed within the framework of TTIP, and where these supervision stands in relation to the institutions of democratic opinion-forming, as well as how environmental aspects are taken into consideration.
