In preparation for the launch of the negotiations for the TTIP the European Commission services of DG TRADE and DG CONNECT hosted a stakeholders' event to gather views and opinions on 12 June 2013.

The European Commission gave an overview of the agreement and indicated how commitments in the ICT services could be made and explained what tools existed in order to ensure clear definitions and classification. At the same time the TTIP would be accompanied by a regulatory framework for cooperation. This approach might be accompanied by a sectoral component which would then also look at inter-operability, mutual recognition or some equivalence in rules.
