Health PolicySpace in the Context ofRegulatory
Cooperation in TTIP
  • Zoltán MASSAY-KOSUBEK, 2 July 2015

2
Health Policy Space Right to Regulate
  • Todays main health challenges in the EU
  • chronic diseases
  • overweight
  • obesity

Regulatory cooperation could significantly limit
the Health Policy Space constrain the right to
regulate of the EU and its Member States in the
public interest
3
Public Health Legislation asRed Tape?
  • Key risk factors
  • alcohol
  • tobacco
  • nutrition
  • Public health measures as irritant to trade?
  • end-price (taxation, subsidies or minimum
    pricing),
  • availability (promotional measures, advertising
    and marketing regulations)
  • accessibility (school environments)

4
Technical Cooperation vs. Public policy
  • Technical cooperation is already happening
  • Potential benefits (medical devices,
    pharmaceuticals, complementary and alternative
    medicines (CAM) and antimicrobial resistance
    (AMR) BUT...
  • In clearly defined sectors only, and
  • Sector selection should be based on solid and
    inclusive impact assessment
  • Is a horizontal Regulatory Cooperation Chapter
    in TTIP really needed for achieving the potential
    benefits?

5
Maintaining European Standards(laws technical
standards)
  • Towards the global lowest common denominator
    level?
  • against the economic interests of a
    knowledge-based economy like Europe
  • Any alternative?
  • sectoral mutual recognition agreements?
  • finances staff for regulatory agencies?
  • international regulatory cooperation?

6
Regulatory Cooperation and Democracy
  • Regulatory processes may gradually appear
    detached from the policy preferences of the
    regulated, or from the agreed policy choice, in
    the case of existing regulations
  • transparency
  • parliamentary scrutiny
  • accountability
  • Public interest civil society
  • involvement
