(2) According to the wording of the Agreement and the arrangements provided for so far, it is not certain that the Federal Republic of Germany is guaranteed possibilities to influence the activities of the committee system. The composition of the committees and their decision-making procedures are only set out in the most basic terms. In particular, the Agreement does not provide for Member State participation in the committees by means of their own representatives with a seat and a vote, regardless of whether the committees address matters that fall within the competence of the European Union or of national governments. It is merely stated that the CETA Joint Committee shall comprise “representatives of the European Union and representatives of Canada” (Art. 26.1(1) first sentence of the CETA draft). It thus seems conceivable that German authorities will be completely excluded from exerting influence in this regard, rendering impossible both the legitimation of committee activities, in terms of participants and matters discussed and accountability with respect to citizens. This might concern trade remedies (Chapter 3), technical barriers to trade (Chapter 4), sanitary and phytosanitary measures (Chapter 5), customs and trade facilitation (Chapter 6), subsidies (Chapter 7), investment (Chapter 8), cross-border trade in services (Chapter 9), temporary entry and stay of natural persons for business purposes (Chapter 10), mutual recognition of professional qualifications (Chapter 11), licensing and qualification requirements and procedures (Chapter 12), financial services (Chapter 13), international maritime transport services (Chapter 14), telecommunications (Chapter 15), electronic commerce (Chapter 16), competition policy (Chapter 17), state enterprises, monopolies, and enterprises granted special rights or privileges (Chapter 18), government procurement (Chapter 19) and intellectual property (Chapter 20).
