MEPs demand that TTIP talks exclude GMOs/EDs

EU/US trade talks should not negotiate on issues such as genetically modified crops or future definitions of endocrine disruptors, or the EU Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) Regulation, says the European Parliament. There is little point in talks on issues where the EU and the US have very different rules, because “there will be no agreement”, it says. The statements are among extensive recommendations on the ongoing Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks. The document was voted through by MEPs just before the tenth round of TTIP talks started in July. The Parliament repeated its call for no relaxation in the EU’s strict food safety rules. The European Commission has always maintained that the talks will not affect health and safety standards.
