[ComputerWorldUK] TTIP Update VIII

In the latest Glyn Moody blog entry on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations, the writer has a closer look at the proposed "regulatory coherence" mechanism that would allow differences in regulations between the EU and the US to be leveled over time.

"Corporate Europe Observatory has obtained a position paper on "regulatory coherence" [...]. It lays out how the major problems of regulatory incompatibility - the chlorine chickens and growth hormone beef, for example - won't be solved now, in the full glare of public scrutiny, but will be shuffled off to the future, where a new and powerful body will be established to "smooth out" those tricky regulatory bumps.
