Located at the heart of the decision-making process, Brussels is the place where European policies and regulations are drafted, negotiated and adopted. Regulatory decisions made in the European Union can also influence multilateral trade rules, as well as agricultural and food policies in many third-countries where Europe is seen as a standard-setter for food safety and environmental protection.
Providing that the European Commission has the exclusive competence for the trade policies of all EU Member States and an increasing role in regulating environmental and food safety aspects, it is essential for businesses engaged in international trade to monitor and shape the EU’s regulatory processes.
