Legal opinion on “CETA, TTIP and the European precautionary principle”

This international study proves that the TTIP and CETA free trade agreements are undermining the European "precautionary principle" for protecting consumers – with far-reaching consequences. For instance, chemicals that are not approved in the EU could enter the European market and food could be subject to increased exposure to pesticides. This is the conclusion of an international team of academics, stated in a legal opinion commissioned by foodwatch.
