On January 18, 2018, the European Commission launched a call for proposals on  regulatory cooperation activities envisaged by the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (“CETA”).

(See our previous post for further details on the provisional application of CETA). The Commission is seeking views from all interested parties on the scope of issues for potential regulatory cooperation in order to prepare for the first meeting of the RCF, tentatively scheduled to take place in mid-2018.This call for proposals is based on Chapter 21 of CETA, which sets out the EU’s and Canada’s overall objectives for cooperation with a view to enhancing convergence and compatibility between each Party’s regulatory measures.
