Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA)


The Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) is an agreement on trade in services currently being negotiated by the European Union and 22 other countries. Its objective is to make trade in services such as e-commerce, telecommunications, financial services and transport between those countries easier.

For BEUC, it is vital that TiSA actually delivers these concrete benefits for consumers while ensuring their current levels of protection are maintained and can be enhanced in the future. To this end, we are closely following the negotiations on TiSA.

We are especially concerned about the lack of transparency in TiSA. Only a few documents on it have been published. This lack of transparency must be remedied to avoid public mistrust in the negotiations.

Our trade activities also focus on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and trade policy in general.
