Commission Decision on the registration of the proposed citizens' initiative*: COMMISSION DECISION

*In the language selected by the organisers in the registration form.

Subject-matter: We invite the European Commission to recommend to the Council to repeal the negotiating mandate for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and not to conclude the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
Main objectives: We want to prevent TTIP and CETA because they include several critical issues such as investor-state dispute settlement and rules on regulatory cooperation that pose a threat to democracy and the rule of law. We want to prevent employment, social, environmental, privacy and consumer standards from being lowered and public services (such as water) and cultural assets from being deregulated in non-transparent negotiations. The ECI supports an alternative trade and investment policy in the EU.
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers: Art 207, 218 Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union
