An in-depth discussion on the strategic future of the transatlantic market in trade and investment took place during the EU-US Summit on April 30, 2007. In December 2007 a Study on Non-Tariff Measures in EU-US Trade and Investment launched. The research consortium included IIDE (the Institute for International & Development Economics), Copenhagen Economics, The Trade Partnership, Risk & Policy Analysts (RPA), ICAP, the Danish Technological Institute (DTI), CARIS and IFO. The goal of the study was to shed light on the existence of non-tariff measures (NTMs) and regulatory divergence, the magnitude of this divergence and the potential economic impact of a reduction or harmonisation of these measures. This volume summarizes the main findings of the final report in English, French and German. In particular, it: Summarizes results of economy-wide and sector-specific NTMs and regulatory divergence as well as cross-cutting NTMs; Analyses and estimations regarding the quantitative overall as well as sector-specific effects of NTM alignment for the EU and US economies; Sector-specific effects and ways in which the competitive positions of sectors are affected in the EU and US economies following NTM alignment.
