The Commission has published a call for tenders for a study to evaluate how CETA has worked in practice. The outcome of this study will feed into the evaluation of CETA, which will take the form of a Staff Working Document to be prepared by the Commission after the end of the project.

In particular, this evaluation will examine:

  1. the effectiveness and efficiency of CETA in achieving its policy objectives;
  2. CETA’s relevance to current trade and economic needs, and challenges faced by the EU and Canada;
  3. the economic, social and environmental (especially climate) impacts of CETA including its effects in/on particular areas/stakeholders: SMEs, consumers, key/sensitive products, preference utilisation rates, and specific economic sectors, and its contribution to the overall objectives of EU’s trade and investment policy in terms of openness, sustainability and assertiveness, as mentioned in the EU's Trade Policy Review.
