The Government has assigned the National Board of Trade to analyse the possible effects of the CETA agreement on the environment, human and animal health and democratic decision-making.
The Board has focused in particular on issues relating to future regulatory space and states’ right to regulate, and has conducted a review of the chapters in the agreement that are considered to affect these aspects. The Board collaborated with several expert authorities.
The Board’s overall assessment is that CETA protects the future regulatory space of the parties. It is considered that the agreement will in the long run provide certain positive effects on the environment and health, while we cannot foresee a significant risk of negative effects on these or on democratic decision-making.
