Critics have voiced concerns about regulatory cooperation in TTIP being a vehicle for a race to the bottom in levels of protection or leading to delays in regulatory action. In addition, there have been allegations that institutions could be created through TTIP mandated to take decisions that would bypass parliamentary decision-making within the EU and its Member States, or would at least give trade and investment interests an undue weight in debates about regulatory action.
