Fair and Secure Trade

CS Europe, both overseas and at headquarters, will promote U.S. job and export growth by tackling tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade in Europe and facilitating a smart and fair trade transatlantic trade relationship. As part of this overall effort, CS Europe will work with ITA’s Enforcement and Compliance Unit (E&C), the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) and other relevant USG agencies to ensure that our European trading partners fulfill their bilateral and multilateral trade commitments to the United States. At the same time, CS Europe, through extensive engagement with U.S. industry and proactive monitoring of European legislation, will work to resolve market access barriers that impede U.S. commercial activities in Europe.

In addition to assisting companies/industries experiencing specific barriers, CS Europe will identify and work to reduce technical and standards regulations, product standards and testing and certification procedures that hamper U.S. exports generally and lead to unnecessary and duplicative costs for exporters. Finally, we will identify areas of potential collaboration between the United States and EU to resolve third-country market access issues in markets such as China, Brazil, Turkey, and India. CS Europe will coordinate these activities with Enforcement and Compliance (E&C) and Industry and Analysis (I&A).
