Committee Member Representative Performer Not Available ccd5f70c-2221-4bde-a2b3-fcfc2656ac4f ETTAC is a private-sector advisory committee that was created by Congress to advise the Federal Government on policies and programs to expand U.S. exports of environmental goods and services. The industry the Committee represents is made up of more than 117,000 revenue-generating organizations that employ nearly 2 million people. Under the Jobs Through Trade Expansion Act, Congress authorized the creation of the Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee to provide advice to the Department of Commerce and other federal agencies on how government policies and practices affect the export of U.S. environmental products and services.In FY 2009-2010, ITA led USG efforts to aggregate the views and recommendations of representatives of the environmental technologies industries, primarily through the ETTAC, synthesized those views and recommendations into a cohesive policy recommendation, and disseminated to key decision-makers and trade policy negotiators. Through these efforts, the USG achieved consensus on an abbreviated definition of environmental goods in the WTO, and set the stage for an interim agreement to be reached in the near term. b66e93b5-06c0-4cc3-9e20-ce2de3d17cd7 Recommandations Not Available 88d8992e-f127-4b39-a73a-3fb1fcbd13f3 Make, Accept, Implement 55295092-04c2-43ea-b982-4b51b733784d 26f850b5-fb82-443a-9ff4-99db2e5a9c5b Recommendations Made Number Environmental Technologies Trade Advisory Committee Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The following papers have been presented to the Secretary of Commerce and the TPCC: Recommendations Report (October,’96); Impediments to Environmental Trade (March ‘99); International Market Access Issues Affecting US Environmental Companies (May ‘00); ETTAC Views on a Global Water Initiative (Sept ‘00); and, a Joint Use Municipal-Industrial Initiative (May ‘02); Recommendation letter opposing "Buy American" provisions in the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) (March '10); Recommendation letter outlining the priorities of the U.S. environmental industry in response to the National Export Initiative.
