The Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD), coordinated
by CI, is a forum of EU and US consumer organisations. TACD
develops and agrees on joint consumer policy recommendations to the
US government and the European Union to promote the consumer
interest in EU and US policy making.
TACD conducts its work through a series of policy committees that
allow for sharing of information and best practice and the
development of common policy positions. TACD currently has policy
committees that look at: intellectual property, information
society, climate change, food, financial services and
TACD has formal advisory status to the Transatlantic Economic
Council, a high-level government-to-government forum and also
contributes to the EU-US High Level Regulatory Cooperation Forum,
as well as other sectoral dialogues.
TACD is currently funded by grants from the European Union and
the Open Society
TACD has its own dedicated website www.tacd.org, which provides the
latest news on policy resolutions, meetings and events.
